Futurist, security expert, and hacker


- -

Pablos is a futurist, computer security expert, and a notorious hacker with a unique view into both breaking and building new technologies.

At Komposite, he consults on bizarre invention and design projects that assimilate new technologies. Previously, Pablos created thigh holsters for cell phones at Tsaya; helped build the world’s smallest PC at OQO; spaceships at Blue Origin; and AI agent systems at Xigo. He is a member of The Shmoo Group of information security professionals, and helped create the Hackerbot, a WiFi-seeking robot.

Chee is his design goddess.

A note about hacking the Picnic site:

On stage at Picnic, I showed some profiles on the Picnic site that I had modified to show "Pablos is My Hero." This was an incredibly simple hack - the speakers had all been given the same password on the site. I merely logged into accounts of a few other speakers (who are friends of mine) and edited their profiles. I haven't looked for any security problems with the Picnic site, or Mediamatic's AnyMeta software that it uses. They seem to have done a great job building a fun site for us all to use!
