Our hacker brains are pre-wired to find alternate uses for many devices, but most often we're "on the grid" and close to our precious electronics and high speed internet. What would happen if you find yourself stranded in the middle of nowhere, become lost during a simple daytime hike, or wake up in the midst of a natural disaster? Over the past year, I have gone to "the middle of nowhere" armed with my video camera, a la survivorman, to demonstrate how your hacker skills are largely compatible with the skills necessary to survive in the wilderness or during a natural disaster. Using demonstrations of simple techniques, some ancient and others more modern, this presentation will show you that your hacker ingenuity is well-suited to helping you survive the worst.
