“Interesting Times”, Cyberpunks and the World of Social Engineering

default-featured-image

Recently we were approached by a very interesting magazine called Interesting Times to write a column for them.  Since I never heard of them I ask for some description on what they do and how they do it…

Here is what I got:

Interesting Times is a self-help magazine for extreme people, helping you survive and thrive in the cyberpunk future of today. Headquartered in Sweden, the magazine provides a unique perspective on the current age of possibility, where every new happening holds the potential for both disaster and groundbreaking success.

The magazine aims to implement total world domination using a shock & awe toolbox of positive thinking, power armor and pornstar girlfriends, edifying the reader with an eclectic mix of interesting subjects including lifestyle design, preparations for the post-apocalypse, and the pursuit of superhuman fitness through batmanesque bodyhacking. Building better bad-asses is our main objective and we aim to please.

Interesting enough to make me do a Vulcan eye brow raise….  Well we did it… and I gotta say the magazine looks sharp.  Our article is on page 34 and then a nice add on page 44.

Anyhow check out the mag and download a copy at the Interesting Time Website we are in Issue #2 page 34.  ENJOY and as always – we want your feedback!

Thanks.

When we decided to do the release of our first podcast we had many people who were skeptical about Interrogation and Social Engineering actually meshing.  Heck a lot of people where even sure if they could ever be tied in. Well we did it.  We found a willing participant, Matt Churchill.  He was not only Continue Reading >

It may be the opinion of some that “Social Engineering is just believing in your lie” or “SE is a matter of who is the best liar” and even “Social Engineering is a matter of just making up a believable story.” Some believe that social engineering is no more than smoke and mirrors and con’ing people. We thought we would reach out and try to dispel some of these myths by writing a small series of articles about this question. The series will be called “How To Become a Social Engineer”
