Pivoting from Planning to Doing




The above tweet by Dan Kaminsky really got into my system.  As someone who makes lists of things to do, I often get trapped planning more than doing.  Since DEFCON 21, I have tried to focus on doing.  Here is a list of my successes so far:
  • Rooted my Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and installed Cyanogenmod 9.
  • Studied Arduino and created a few basic projects.
  • Started following security wonks on Twitter and have become fairly well-versed in the conversation.
Where to go from here?
  • Hack Skylanders and Disney Infinity using tag writers and custom code.
  • Help Ethan get through Scratch manual.  He has had a blast so far.
  • Creating a product in Arduino.  Planning a card swipe emulator to apply my skills to real world annoyance.
  • And probably most important: settle on a handle.  VegasVic?
