Weaving the Open Web: Taking the Hacker Ethos to New Turfs (Talk)

Speaker: Henrik Moltke
When: Thursday Sept 8, 20h00-21h00

“We live in a world where nerds have web freedom and noone else does” said Jonathan Zittrain on BBC last year. One could add: “Because they simply don’t care”. Most internet natives and hackers share the view that the infrastructure we all depend on should remain free and open. This ethos is challenged by politicians, industry and lawyers in a never-ending cat and mouse game. My talk will showcase projects that seek to bridge this gap between “nerds” and “the rest of us” in an attempt to show why freedom and openness matters.
