Hidden Service – A Digital Distributed Online-Chaos

German Logo: Digital Distributed Online-Chaos – Hidden Service

TL;DR On April 11th und 12th, we’re doing a *Digital Distributed Online-Chaos* with many talks. More info at https://di.c3voc.de/en:start

April 2020, the hackerspaces in all of Germany are closed, and all events cancelled. Chaos is disappearing from shared spaces, workshops and craft corners, and retreats into the living room. The community can only stay visible through the hidden heroes of Chaos: the infrastructure. Mostly ignored and assumed to be a given, the decentralized, non-commercial, and tracking-free services allow Chaos to continue to be Chaos. These otherwise hidden services become more visible than ever. Video and audio conference systems allow hackspaces to be transferred to the virtual realm; pads, gits, and wikis enable us to continue to work together. It’s time to stay home, but no time to go into hiding.

We believe that our events can be run like this too, and want to try a digital distributed online Chaos. At least you should not be left alone over Easter! So we’re hiding an easter egg for you: on the 11th and 12th of April, we’re going to have the first Online Chaos – Hidden Services. The whole event will be streamed at https://media.ccc.de. All information and the schedule Fahrplan will be published shortly at https://di.c3voc.de/en:start and on Twitter @dic3voc and in the Fediverse at @dic3voc@chaos.social.

Together with the VOC, we have designed an infrastructure that allows speakers to stream their talk from home, or pre-record it. Viewers can ask questions, and heralds will accompany the talks. The schedule Fahrplan will be online soon, but you can already register your own self-organised session https://di.c3voc.de/sessions-liste.

All talks will be presented in German. Through the services of the c3lingo team, many of them will be translated into English, and maybe even additional languages. Check the schedule for the details. For the best experience listening to the translation, you should install a Mumble client on your system. Please see https://wiki.c3lingo.org/for-attendees for further details.

Let’s create a distributed conference together and learn a lot—not just for now, but for times to come.
