Since December 1996, Russian hacker Ilya V. Vasilyev has run a Moscow
educational center for hacker training. Inspired by East Asian martial
arts training, his Civil Hackers' School has received thousands of
applications, trained hundreds of students from ages 12 to 64, and
obtained world-wide media coverage. Ilya also teaches an adapted version
of this program as an after-school course, "The Basics of Hacking Art",
for teenagers and their teachers.

Ilya has presented the Civil Hackers' School project at the Chaos
Communication Camp in Germany in 2007 and in Las Vegas in 2008. This
week, he will present the project here in the Bay Area at Noisebridge on
Tuesday, August 11, at 7:00 p.m.

He also plans to offer an intensive Hacking Run this weekend --
August 14-16 -- to give interested Bay Area residents a taste of the
curriculum, take them through a version of the training program, and
prepare and certify them to lead similar training in the Bay Area.
Participants in the Hacking Run are expected to contribute to the
purchase and preparation of food for the event.
