Description

by Vesna Manojlovic:

"Hackers conferences are the grassroots events organized by the individuals that agree to cooperate with each other on the completely voluntary, un-institutionalized, ad-hock bases.

  • The biggest and the oldest in Europe are the CCC congresses, organised

once a year in Germany (this winter will be the 29th edition). 3-day long meeting with talks, workshops and discussions on topics of “hacking”: HW and SW security, Internet freedoms, (digital) human rights, innovation, new technologies, and impact on the society.

  • There are also week-long outdoor events: every 4 years in Germany,

and every 4 years in Holland: in the last 15 years I went to 7 of them; and there are other ones around the world. Last summer at the ex-military airport near Berlin we talked about launching hackers-owned communications satellites, and having a hackers space program to put the first hacker on the moon by 2034!

  • In Holland, at OHM: Observe, Hack, Make"
