The Yes Men are revolting!

It may seem that the only times I post here it is to endorse crowdfunding projects – but believe me, that is not intentional. Still, I’d like to point to yet another funding campaign, this time on Kickstarter. The infamous and brilliant Yes Men are launching a new documentary project titled “The Yes Men are […]

“Hackitat” – a new crowdfunded film about political hacking

Hackitat is a new Swedish-produced documentary project to highlight the motivation behind the wave of politically charged so-called hacktivism (see definition further down on this blog) that has swept the globe in the last couple of years, lead ao. by groups such as Anonymous, LulzSec and, in effect, Wikileaks. The project is being crowdfunded via […]

The Work of Art in the Age of Digital Reproduction

In an interesting comment on, Claire L. Evans writes: In his seminal 1991 essay, “The Work of Art in the Age of Digital Reproduction,” the video artistDouglas Davis writes that digital bits “can be endlessly reproduced, without degradation, always the same, always perfect.” Digital Decay from universe on Vimeo. The statement follows the above video […]

Explaining hacktivism // #infographic

We’re getting really big on infographics (actually, we’ve been for a while). This time we’re presenting the work of the Frugal Dad blog that have produced a beautiful and visually appealing infographic explaining the new hacktivism buzz that is sweeping the globe. Hacking has really been taking a new activist role in society in recent […]

Copying as religion – P2P as in Priest2Priest // #lulz #copyright #religion

Brokep aka. Peter Sunde of Flattr (ao.) writes on his blog (with reference to the recent news that “Kopimistsamfundet” – “The Society of Kopimism” – was officially accepted as a new religion in Sweden) that he’s “been following the church up closely and wanted to post my views on why this is an important move.” This […]

The ACTA threat to the Internets // #acta #freedom

The magnificent La Quadrature du Net – an advocacy group that promotes the rights and freedoms of citizens on the Internet – has just released three videos to inform Europeans about the ACTA agreement that is currently being lobbied in the EU Parliament. ACTA is presented as a trade agreement, but is in fact a threat to […]

Opportunity for communication: Occupy Big Banks with Their Own Junk Mail // #activism #pranks

In the more pranksy division of the political activism spectrum comes this fun suggestion from the good people over at GOOD, where Wylie Overstreet has a suggestion for a pretty easy and fun way to occupy banks from within; through their own junk mail – or, as he puts it: “Using it as an opportunity […]

The future of money // #futureofmoney

The emerging awareness that the way we today assess value – that is, through monetization – is becoming increasingly problematic is something that is incredibly interesting, I think. The below video (written by Gabriel Shalom, Venessa Miemis and Jay Cousins), uploaded to vimeo by Berlin studio KS12 and posted with a nice article on […]

Support and sign the ACTA-declaration from EFF! #eff #acta

I do not normally endorse causes with so little subtlety as in the headline above, but in this case I urge everyone to sign the petition to support the ACTA-declaration by EFF, the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Read why here (please do!) and sign here.

Big Content’s war on democracy / #acta

We’ve probably all been following the ACTA-case with our breath held back to some extent (if you haven’t really been paying close attention, check out this great video – it’s 40 minutes, but really worth it). In this post I will not deal with the ACTA details themselves, but rather point the attention towards one […]
