Tik Tok! Who’s there? Hackers and geeks, Freifunkers and radio freeks, cyber anthropologists, security researchers, tech historians, system theoreticians, internet-governance-taskforcercs, anti-exploit engineers, DIYers and makers: this track is dedicated to you, your research, your tools, gimmicks and (open source) projects. We want to disassemble, analyse and reverse engineer how technical developments and innovations influence culture and society, but also how culture and society in turn drive or hinder developments and innovations. We want to marvel at quantum logic, malware and other code, discuss the need for regulation, find new solutions and democratize progress.

Tbd are major breakthroughs as well as incremntal improvements, tinkerings and design, soft- and hardware, techniques and cultural technology, new materials, failing up, making and breaking. We’re as interested in infrastructures as we are in insights from your laboratory, think tank and university logbooks. All those with ideas for a better life with - or despite - technology, we look forward to your contribution!
