H2K2 (2002): "Digital Demonstrations: Criminal DDoS Attack or Cyber Sit-in?" (DVD)
Sunday, July 14, 2002: 11:00 am (Area "B"): Being able to carry political opinions to the public by showing them on the street is a basic part of democratic rights. Nowadays, a steadily increasing part of our life takes place in cyberspace. Things which aren't happening in cyberspace will therefore get less and less public attention. How can protest be taken into the virtual realm? What strategies for "online demonstrations" have we seen so far? How about the ethical and legal dimensions? Who gets hurt? Host Maximillian Dornseif will present a new approach for conducting online demonstrations without adversely affecting other users on the net.
