This workshop is one of the research outputs of the "Our Data Ourselves" project at the Department of Digital Humanities at King's College London. We tracked the network usage of apps on the smartphones of a number of young coders from Young Rewired State. Some of their behaviour was so surprising we disassembled them to find out what they were up to.


It proved so easy, that we collected all the tools we used in a virtual machine image and invited a Celebrity Guest Hacker to show people how it's done. Attendees who'd never touched the shell before came away having mastered Wireshark. What are your favourite apps saying about you? Come and find out, we have 20 rooted Android 'phones to play with. The virtual machine will be distributed on a highly exclusive "Our Data, Ourselves" flash-drive, which you can keep after the session.
