in berlin for re:publica: hacktivism!

On May 7, I was in Berlin to take part in a panel entitled 'Hacktivism, or Fifty Shades of Grey Hat'. I joined Biella Coleman (McGill University) and Frank Rieger (Chaos Computing Club) to examine the roots of hacktivism and its antecedents, who's been doing what, and where things might be going. The panel was organized by Oxblood Ruffin, one of the founders of the Cult of the Dead Cow. Check out the video here. Thanks Oxblood for putting it together!
