I went to this colloquium:

Recent Progress in Cryptographic Hashing
John R. Black
Department of Computer Science
University of Colorado at Boulder

Thursday, October 18, 2007
ECCR 265

This colloquium served as Dr. Black's tenure talk. He gave a high-level
overview of his work over the last 7 to 10 years as well as a bit of
explanatory background in the areas of crypotography, cryptanalysis,
and computer security. The meat of the talk concerned cryptographic
hash functions and the recent exploit of MD5. The colloquium concluded
with questions. Overall the talk was very well done - just the right
level of technical depth while being funny and entertaining.
