EtherPEG and Panopticon  MAY 17 2002

Two quick-hack stars of the conference: EtherPEG eavesdropping and Panopticon (explanation). EtherPEG sniffs packets on a wireless network and displays the images being sent. Great fun to watch in a roomful of people surfing the Web in tune to a presentation. As for Panopticon: "Firstly, do not look at the Javascript code. Or sit down before you do. I wrote it in a night. I don't know Javascript. I don't even *enable javascript on my browser*. I just grabbed code from here and there and uncomprehendingly stuck it together." Brilliant. I love the Web.
