Version 1.5b Castle in the Sky
lecture: Ten years after ‚We Lost The War‘
The future does not look much brighter than ten years ago. What comes next, and what can the hacker community do to make things better?
The talk „We Lost The War“ was presented at Congress ten years ago, causing quite a stir. It was a prediction of a dark future that did not sit well with many people, but unfortunately many predictions have come true meanwhile. This talk will try to address what comes next, as well as what the hacker community can do to make things better.
It’s a broad-spectrum talk that covers analysis of past and current events and possible futures in specific fields such as surveillance and digital rights, as well as a broader analysis of where the speakers think the world might be in 5-10 more years.
