Presentation title: Counter-Culture and Tin Foil Hats in the Cyberpunk Age presented at BsidesDFW2013 2013

by Josh Scott,

Summary : Many of the promises of Cyberpunk fiction have come to pass, we have mega corporations running the world, massive environmental damage wrought by greedy industrialists and pervasive almost oppressive technology subverting our privacy and civil rights. In this talk we will discuss the effects that technology has had on our privacy, the counter culture, and our rights in general. We will discuss hacktivism, the dangers presented to a technology enhanced activist, and what we can do to protect ourselves from the invasions of privacy from the Mega corporations and our own government.
