My friend and fellow artist Raphy Griswold and I have had an ongoing mail art / cassette exchange going for the past few years. This month I put together my latest contribution, and decided to digitize it before mailing the original copy. I treated my broke self to a $20 cassette deck at the local thrift spot for my birthday, and this came together pretty quickly after that.

DeadDrops HackDay
June 22, 2014, Sunday, 12:00 pm – 12:00 am (save the date!)
at awesome! c-base, Rungestr. 20, Berlin (map)

We will brainstorm, discuss, hack and hang at Spree riverside with bbq and drinks!
Open to everyone, free entrance, drop by any time!

#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!
