|Description|| More and more devices that we buy are crippled. They are in one way or another artificially restricted in their use. Also, manufacturers try their best to not let you change, tinker or even repair your own device. They are "endproducts", literally.
To keep control of technology and privacy not in the hands of monopolised interests but in the hands of society, we need to keep control of the hardware that surrounds us. There will be a brief introduction and examples to the topic. After that I like to discuss the principal rights that we need as consumers to keep or achieve privacy from the things that surround us. And merge them with the principal rights that we need as tinkerers, professional or hobbyists, to get control of the hardware that surrounds us - to use, study, share and improve it.
