Beschreibung:

Hackers do the work of journalists, journalists do coding, designers hack the hell out of data. Curious individuals follow digital clues only to uncover big stories of corruption, abuse or disinformation while crime networks get sophisticated on the cloud.

Government observes, and sometimes hires hackers, who used to work for corporations, to spy on activists, or maybe everyone, just in case.

In last 5 years we can observe radical shifts in the way digital technology has made the way for complex forms of investigation and evidence-gathering to challenge existing power structures. Where is it all going? What might the consequences be? And what does it mean for me with my Facebook account, 400 Twitter friends and vocal political engagement?
