I had the pleasure of speaking at Ignite Seattle 13 last night. It was a blast! Thanks everyone who showed up.
My talk was titled, Searching for Adam Savage, and was based around a research project that I conducted called Seeker. The basic premise is this:
Modern cell phones frequently include a camera and a GPS. Even if a GPS is not included, cell phone towers can be used to establish the location of the phone. Image formats include special headers that can be used to store this information, so called EXIF tags. In this talk, I described the process that was used to find the information that many consumers (including celebrities) unknowingly broadcast out on the internet.
The article that resulted from my research can be found over at ZaaLabs.
During the presentation one of my slides was missing, somehow creating the slides in Apple Keynote and then converting them to PowerPoint caused some issues.
So here is the slide that was missing.
Also, Ben Huh of Cheezburger Network wants everyone to know that they are hiring.
