LAS VEGAS--Dan Kaminsky has been giving talks at the Black Hat Security 
Conference for nine years. For five of those years his grandmother, now 
85, has been in the audience. The last three talks, she baked cookies 
for attendees -- what Kaminsky refers to as "session cookies."

Grandma Kaminsky, also known as Raia Maurer, made 250 Swedish lace 
cookies for the crowd this year. But that fell far short of the 
standing-room only audience that showed up to hear his talk.

I chatted a bit with Maurer who hails from Eastern Europe but emigrated 
to Canada with her husband in 1951 and later came to live with 
Kaminsky's family in California after her husband died. She bought 
Kaminsky his first computer -- or, rather, she gave him $1,800 to 
purchase parts to build his first computer.

She recalls the first time she heard him speak at Black Hat.
