Jaromil gives a lecture on 9 November 2017 in Enschede:The hacker revolution
Hackers are the rebellious rockstars of our times. Manning, Assange, Snowden and the omnipresent mask of Anonymous have all become incredibly influential in drawing a part of human history that can hardly be forgotten. Hacker communities – with their disruptive, creative ethos – have played a key role in a number of technical, economic, political and social innovations in the past decades.
In his lecture, Jaromil will go across some major events, milestones for the hacker community worldwide, to demonstrate that the ethical code of hackers can be regarded as a novel and extremely important heritage. He will use practical examples in history of hackers, artists and activists who changed the world.
