Summary by Aram Bartholl on the anual congress by Chaos Computer Club last week. When I first saw his Dead Drop project, I immediately thought of William Gibson’s Spook Country and ideas of locative art. The first video is a good presentation of why we need to care about things like SOPA. Lower Merion township, famous for Kobe Bryant and Tina Fey, is also infamously known, and mention in the presentation, for spying on its students.
If anything, the CCC and the work they do is an encouragement for me to improve my german.
