[Owasp-leaders] Sydney OWASP and the ~Content Creation~ Journey

Hi Internet-friends!

The Sydney chapter is kicking off again, and to be honest, the experience
has been a bit hit and miss so far. The meetups thing only seems to work
when there's someone around to create and deliver content, and let's face
it, with people having day jobs and all, that's not always going to happen.
So we started making our own content: a month or so ago, I asked if anyone
else didn't know anything about Mac OS X reverse engineering and wanted to
learn. A few people put their hands up, and from then, we've been having
weekly meetups to work together on understanding fat binaries, Mach-O and
whatnot.

This particular experiment has been an unmitigated success. I know it's not
technically "web" but it's ~content~ and has people interested, so good
enough for me - and I want to share it with everyone else.

The source code is available at github.com/CreateRemoteThread/macosx (is
there somewhere I can stick it with an OWASP logo?), and the overarching
goal of the project is to write a (good/usable) Mac OS X disassembler +
debugger, and in the process learn heaps about Mac OS X executable format
and process stuff. It's a learning experience for all of us so please
excuse the quality of the code, and I use emacs ("use" in the broadest
sense of the term) so excuse the derp formatting. If any of you other
chapter leaders, or your chapter members are interested in collaborating on
this, or would like more information, please do drop me a line and we can
work something out :)
