Uploaded on Feb 15, 2012
Speaker: Matt 'openfly' Joyce

Trolling is something that today has a very negative connotation on the Internet and in the common usage of the word outside of it. However, for better or worse trolling has long enjoyed a close relationship with hacking be it in the area of information security, or simply in technology development. I intend to delve into the definition of a troll, the history of trolling in human culture ( as well as its contributions ), and the techniques that are generally exploited by trolls to realize their intended goals. There will be several past projects that I classify as successful trolls that I will use as object lessons in the practical application of the discussed techniques. Trolls span the gaps between hardware and software projects and at times can carry a variety of "payloads".
