Making Peace with Jealousy in Polyamorous Relationships with Anita Wagner
Hyatt Regency Washington 400 NJ Ave NW
----------

Sound familiar? Just when we think we've got our act together, our relationships are going well and we're maybe even feeling confident, someone we love is attracted to someone new, and all of a sudden the bottom falls out. Or we meet someone new and want to explore our attraction to them, and contrary to what we anticipate, a poly partner starts freaking out. Why is this happening? Why do our emotions sometimes run so contrary to our will? What's a fair and reasonable poly person to do? We need not be jealousy's victims! Come learn to accurately analyze and identify jealousy's complex underlying emotions. Devise an effective plan that works for you that will take away their seemingly overwhelming emotional power. With a bit of patience, some love and support, and the right poly relationship skills, we all have the power to make peace with jealousy.
Anita Wagner is a passionate polyamory advocate, blogger, spokesperson, educator, and sexual freedom activist. Through her website and blog at <http://practicalpolyamory.com>practicalpolyamory.com she provides useful resources that focus on subjects such as making peace with jealousy, managing poly/mono relationships, and poly-friendly therapy. She co-founded Chesapeake Polyamory Network and The Institute for 21st Century Relationships, which is the foundation of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, where she also served on the board of directors. She has presented educational programs on polyamory to CAPEX, at Good Vibrations, Sex 2.0, Dark Odyssey, Transcending Boundaries, Poly Living, Black Rose, and Loving More Retreat, amongst others.

Cyber Security for Perverts with Alex McGeorge
Hyatt Regency Washington 400 NJ Ave NW
----------

If you've ever used a computer, you have enough knowledge to get something out of this class. We will discuss practical aspects of computer security and anonymity for perverts and ruffians. We will tackle a lot of the myths of computer security as they relate to the home user. This includes: what is 'exploitation', types of exploitation, anti-virus software, personal firewalls, common attacks against a user, staying anonymous, pitfalls of the major browsers, common sense suggestions, what is 'the most secure' platform, virtualization and much more. This will not be a strictly technical lecture, come to learn, enjoy jokes, porn and anecdotes.

Alex McGeorge works on the offensive side of computer security for Immunity Inc and has been in the security business since age
16. His main responsibilities at Immunity include assessing a customer's computer security posture by breaking into their assets,
coding in Python for Immunity's exploitation framework CANVAS, moral support, free hugs and occasionally high fives. Alex has
lectured on kinky topics for BR 2004 and MsC 2010 and is a member of Black Rose.
