From last week’s 28th Chaos Communication Congress (28C3) – an annual four-day conference on technology, society and utopia – there are a couple of really interesting talks. Of course, these are freely available (the logo on the right directs to their youtube-channel, the link in the blockquote takes you to the wiki) under a creative commons (BY-NC-ND) license.
As practised with 26C3 and 27C3 we want you to come together. no nerd left behind: Allow those unable to attend the Congress in Berlin to celebrate their own Hack Center Experience, watch the streams, participate via twitter or chats, drink Tschunk, cook and have a good time.
