Greetings All,

You are invited to join us at the next GatorLUG meeting in beautiful (and 
thankfully now wet) Gainesville, FL. Summer is here and its hot. But you can 
cool off with some great technology and cold libations. Virtually Cuban on 
13th street runs drink specials for our meeting. Imported stuff is $2, 
domestic stuff is less. Come early and eat some really great Cuban food. 
Meetings are always free and open to the general public.

6:15-7:00 Presentation | MapZap - GIS for Bicyclists | Jim Wilson

A cyclist's needs are modest. She wants to get from here to to there by a safe 
and enjoyable route. Alas, the information she needs to plan her trip isn't 
published anywhere. She must tediously probe the her neighborhood to expand 
her mental map of acceptable streets.  Or, she can join the bike club and 
draw on the local "lore".
 
MapZap is an open-source attempt to document, quantify, pool and organize this 
isolated lore into a larger corpus of desirable roads.  These roads can be 
assembled into pleasant routes by a newcomer, visiting or touring cyclist.
 
Two components of MapZap will be demonstrated:  A web-aware downloader that 
fetches free TigerLine county maps from the US Census bureau, and the main 
GUI where a user quickly traces out her latest bike ride.
 
Hopefully, this will stimulate a lively discussion of prospective metrics that 
could be used to quantify these data.  Both left- and right-brain skills will 
be useful for this discussion.

Jim Wilson is a programmer who lives in Gainesville, Florida. When he is not 
writing code or removing bloat from Red Hat flavored distros, Jim enjoys 
putting lots of miles on his recumbent bike (as in triple digit miles in a 
day).

7:00-8:00 Presentation | Hacking From the Inside Out | Jordan Wiens

You know the web browser is a vector for external attacks. But, what about 
internal ones? You might not be aware of how capable the web browser can be 
as a hacking tool. Some highlights:

• Port scanning and attacking intranet devices using JavaScript
• Blind Web server fingerprinting using unique URLs
• Discovery NAT'ed IP addresses with Java applets
• Stealing Web browser history with cascading style sheets
• Essential tips for secure intranets

Jordan Wiens is a Network Security Engineer in Computing and Networking 
Services at the University of Florida. Jordan protects the campus network by 
day and does who knows what at night. He is the primary architect behind the 
current UF campus intrusion detection system that monitors the campus network 
for suspicious activity.
