This year the Chaos Communication Conference hosted a stream on ‘art & beauty’ where !Mediengruppe Bitink presented Hacking as Artistic Practice (see video) and Robert Ochshorn presented Against Metadata (see video).
We briefly had a chance to brainstorm how to work with Interlace for the Media Mesh workshop at the Taking Care of Things event in January. Julian Assange spoke over a video link on Sysadmins of the world, unite! (see video).
Other highlights of the art stream were:
The philosophy of hacking
The Pirate Cinema
Turing Complete UserAnonymity and Privacy in Public Space and on the Internet
Do You Think That’s Funny?
