It should come as no surprise that dissent is playing a prominent role
in the HOPE X conference. So many technological developments of late
involve standing up to authority and questioning the status quo.
Whether it's using social media to organize people into doing
something worthwhile, exposing security holes in the face of threats
and lawsuits, becoming a whistleblower by using the information and
technology we have access to, or just getting the word out about the
latest laws, restrictions, and threats to our freedom and privacy, a
lot of what we talk about constitutes one form or another of dissent.
And it feels pretty good and healthy to speak out and share knowledge.
Our new dissent-themed HOPE X website has just gone live and it's
worth exploring, even if you have absolutely no intention of coming to
HOPE X this summer. But if you are planning on joining us, the site
should answer all of your questions. If it doesn't, let us know.
Along with our theme, we'll be hosting a keynote by Daniel Ellsberg,
the legendary "Pentagon Papers" whistleblower. We have many more talks
that we?ll be announcing soon, and the window for speaker submissions
ends on April 30.
HOPE X will be taking place at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City
from July 18 to July 20, 2014.
