[liberationtech] Call for Participants @ Noisy Square - Putting the Resistance back in OHM

Dear LibTech Readers,

In a little bit over a month OHM2013 is happening in The Netherlands. There has been a lot of controversy in the run-up to this gathering. There was criticism of the involvement of tech security company Fox-IT, then there was a heated debate on the presence of Dutch High-tech Crime Unit in a village of their own. Both discussions have calmed down. But the relevance of these topics was clarified and reinforced.

The Noisy Square Village will be the centre at OHM for discussing these and many more topics revolving around netpolitics, liberation technologies and surveillance. We want to be the place for connecting techno-activists, hacktivists, people involved with circumvention tools, and everyone interested in anti-censorship and anti-surveillance technology. We will connect the NGO's which work in the field to the hackers and programmers who work  on machines. We believe that all technology is political, and that we need to discuss and question its development and usage as critically as possible.

This call for participation is meant to ask the community which topics must be addressed -- especially those which might go unnoticed or undiscussed . So if you would like to: present recent work, hold a discussion, do a demonstration, organize the largest key signing party ever, co-create a hackathon or booksprint, or something radically different:

Looking forward to the richness of you ideas!
