Topy Topy likes physical security. He's spent a lot of time over the past 6 years attending as many Aussie conferences as possible running lockpicking classes to introduce people to it. As a result, a vibrant community has been born and this has resulted in the birth of the OzSecCon conference down in Melbourne. In his spare time he likes leet hax, rock climbing and the HackHouse hackerspace. Locksport Village
