Program details:

Ever wonder how criminals cover their online tracks? We all know the
internet is a big weird place, used as an avenue for criminal activity as
well a tool for law enforcement and writers sleuthing out those criminals.
How much can we learn about the "dark" side of the web in an hour? Come to
the September 8 RMMWA meeting and find out!

September’s program, presented by Dylan Proulx, will include a 50-cent tour
of the web, the intricacies of search engines, the surface web, the Deep
Web, the Dark Web, how to find stuff, and how to cover your tracks. He’ll
talk about how the internet can be used for nefarious purposes and how to
know you’re using it safely. He’ll also cover cryptocurrency, what it is and
how it’s used. In other words, everything you wanted to know but were afraid
to Google.

Dylan Proulx started programming at the age of 6, on the day that his mother
made scones. His brother showed him BASIC programming on the ancient family
Kaypro 1. While Dylan hasn’t had a decent scone since then, the programming
stuck. He started professional programming in the late ’90s working on Y2K
projects for CARL corporation, a library-automation company. He has since
worked for Amazon.com, ESPN, a bank, and most recently ADT. Although he
bills himself as a general-purpose software engineer, he has a slight
inclination towards information security. He has taught company-wide
web-security classes at Amazon.com, and once was given a parking spot for
"dedication to security" (where he was promptly ticketed for parking in a
reserved spot).

(Parking at the Denver Press Club usually runs $5 after 6 p.m., but
sometimes if there are special events in town, the rate will bump higher. If
