THE FUTURE OF OFFLINE FILESHARING
06/06/2012 to 08/06/2012
A 3-Day Masterclass during Dutch Technology Week
with Aram Bartholl and David Darts
June 6-8, 2012
Strijp-S, Eindhoven, NL
A collaboration between STRP, MU and Baltan Laboratories
In the era of growing Internet surveillance, filtering, ACTA, 3-strikes and censorship, offline data sharing is becoming more and more important for freedom of communication. Centred around the projects Dead Drops by Aram Bartholl and PirateBox by David Darts, this masterclass aims to find more and new ways to share data in an offline mode.
What is the best way to send a file to a friend? How can I store data anonymously in public space? What are the best components to build up a local offline sharing grid? Will animals play a role in the future of offline filesharing?
Participants will explore these questions and learn everything they need to know from Aram and David to make their own Dead Drops and PirateBoxes. They will also create their own new ideas for offline filesharing and experiment with them around the Strijp-S terrain in Eindhoven.
