Goodbye Privacy Symposium IV

Creative Resistance

While the ways and means at the disposal of a control-based society are becoming increasingly refined, artists and hackers are discovering gaps in the system. Creative resistance—beating the system with its own tools—can be put up by everyone. This will be a presentation of the basic principles of finding ways out of the digital Panopticon: active data protection and creative system hacks.
