Here, I’ll give a post-game analysis of my talk and the questions I was asked. The slides from my talk are now posted online, but I’ve included a few of my favorite screenshots below. A lot of Photoshop went into this presentation.

Eric (featured in the videos below), other students in the Security and Privacy Research Lab, and I created an internet-connected touch light, then turned it into an internet-connected basketball hoop light switch.
