#webstreaming #IRC #beers #sun

Deaddrops started in 2010. People from all over the world have been making more than 1300 deadrops untill today! The project inspired many other DIY offline network projects and since last year after Snowden the site gained again new momentum. It is interesting how this and similar projects are perceived in a different light today. We actually need secure and alternative communication channels since we now know how bad mass surveillance on the Internet is.  You are invited to discuss all these questions with us at the DeadDrops HackDay.

The platform deaddrops.com, mobile site and apps etc were developed by a whole bunch of enthusiasts from around the world in the past 4 years. Thx everyone!! :)) Unfortunately the development of deaddrops.com came to a halt some time ago but now is the right moment to pick up and take things to the next level. You are invited to join us on June 22 at c-base to brainstorm, discuss and hack for deaddrops. I’m very open to all kind of proposals! It’s not only about USB drives, there is much more waiting out there… Let’s rock!!

Please register at deaddrops at deaddrops com and let me know your interest, skills and field of work. This would help a lot.  In the evening there will be slots to present your spinoff, project and ideas. More info and details coming soon!

Internet history is a history of friendships, the history of friendships is a history of meetings “@monki

The place where Piratbyrån and F.A.T met was of course IRC and then the groups overlapped basically because of kopimi, like everything else does in the internet and AFK.

Fatties Evan, Geraldine and Magnus were last week in London hanging out in Harringay with the Piratbyrån bunch and setting up the exhibition “Piratbyrån and Friends”, that opened in Furtherfield last saturday.

The exhibition traces  stories and affinities behind the swedish group of friends from which the most resilient cultural project on the planet emerged a decade ago.  The gallery exhibition features a collection of archival material, t-shirts, films, comissioned artworks-networks and oddities- together with a vast and complex digital archive available in the Commons of Furtherfield and inside the Kopimi Totem, ready for you to explore and copy.

Don’t miss the show if you are around Finsbury Park, it runs until June 8th! Otherwise here is a preview:

S23m (system 23 modified) by Piratbyrån, Geraldine Juárez and Simon Klose.

In 2008 Pratbyrån had grown tired of the file-sharing debate and its endless repetitions of for-or-against, legal-or-illegal, payment-or-gratis, so they loaded a bus with 23 people and head over south in Sweden in a bus: S23M (System 23 Modified), The bus became one of the most significant undertakings of Piratbyrån and shaped their thoughts on the tensions between digital abundance and crowded space, collective decisions and freedom of choice, and that which can be copied and that which can’t.

Moar pics here!

Much thanks to Marc, Ruth and Rachel at Furtherfield for an inspiring time and great exhibition. Plus extra love to Ale and Rich for being so excellent with us.   Shout out to our friends Palle, Rasmus, Danny, Kugg, Samira and Jimmy for being such great inspiration. data<3
