Tactical Tech - Bridging the Gap

Don't call us if your campaign does not work! And worse, everyone's been harassed or arrested.

In 30 minutes we will try to convene that – one good hack, one good infographic, one good video, one good march – in fact anything singular would never change anything – unless it has a power of a giant asteroid (some things do).

So what is needed? Why hackers should work with designers, why designers should work with campaigners, why activists should learn coding? And if they finally manage somehow (it happens!), why it can be so easily destroyed if they do not give a damn about security and privacy? Come and listen and then talk to us, we have some experience to share.

During a 30 minute talk we'd like to introduce our work to the wider CCC community, discuss some of the problems we face in bridging the gap between the communities of people who develop open source pro-privacy tools on the one and people who need those tools on the other hand. We work with people in many different places of the world whose work and well-being depends on online security. At 29c3 we'd like to start building stronger ties with people who want to help us provide, find, choose or audit the necessary tools.

Tactical Tech is an international NGO working to enable the effective use of information for progressive social change. Among other things we provide information, material and trainings to help activists, human rights advocates, journalists and members of communities at risk to communicate safely online.
