A first-hand talk about the politics, technology and ethics of hacktivism. I'll give an overview of some of the active groups, including "Anonymous":http://anonops.ru/ and "Telecomix":http://telecomix.org and discuss some of the projects I've worked on in the past few months. See this "blog post":http://blog.wearpants.org/hacking-for-freedom and "video of lightning talk":http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bilJ7lZtutQ from Pycon
Other areas of discussion include: possibilities for future action, staying safe online, IRC etiquette, do-ocracy and anarchic organizing. Questions answered.
