Eyes into an active AO during a war

Watching Putin invade Ukraine, live streaming on YouTube was incredibly wild. Watching those same cameras fall offline, or be turned into misinformation tools was frustrating (ruptly and rt rebroadcasting day-old footage, calling it live, etc). Amit and I were nonplussed. So we fixed it. So Putin decided to invade Ukraine, and this was a particularly interesting development for folks that work in parts of security, who monitor what nation states do to other nation states, as well as OSINT professionals, and surprisingly, anyone who scans the whole internet to find cameras. Amit and Dan both share a history of targeting cameras on the internet, for various reasons, and when the touristy streaming cameras either went offline, or were showing day old footage, they decided that being able to keep eyes on Ukraine without the interference of media outlets, disinformation campaigns or spin was something they would have to take into their own hands. This is a two-talk combo-pack, full of technical howto, OSINT, and portable knowledge that you can use in either an offensive, defensive, or OSINT capacity. Come with us on what was a wild ride!
