i-Wear Fashion Show

by Esther Schindler

I admit that I'm fascinated by the concept of intelligent clothing. And terrified, too, from the possibilities of security and privacy breaches. Do I really want someone to hack my underwear?

Too bad, then, that I won't be able to attend the i-WEAR fashion show, which is being held in Paris, Barcelona, and Berlin.

The project takes place in the framework of the European Science and Technology Week, part of the European Union’s research programme to inform the public about the latest science and technology developments and trends. The event in Paris takes place on 5 November at 18:00 at Atelier Richelieu 60, rue de Richelieu (Palais de Richelieu).

If anybody is willing to attend, I bet I could even find a freelance budget at InformIT to cover a short article about the technological advances. (It's... networking. Yeah. Mention .NET or Windows system administration, and we'll be okay.)

Returning the question: Would anyone really want to hack my underwear? Noone wants to enter it physically (at least not that I know of, currently... ;-)), so why would anyone want to invade electronically?

Sure, in general there is a severe danger of security and privacy breaches, but for the underwear?

Last time I looked you were a boy, and Esther was a girl. That might make a difference. :-)

Why would anybody want to hack a web site, either? There are those who will try to get in just to say they did.

As I know from way too many dates, during my single days.

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
