Next weeks Stammtisch will not be at Buchhandlung, but instead we will go the opening of Transmediale 2012 in/compatible, in which Telekommunisten is a participant. The opening is free and all are encouraged to come!
Also I’m participating at Interflugs is Today:
- Skalitzer Straße 133, 10999
Constanze Kurz and Frank Rieger (Chaos Computer Club) will discuss with Dmytri Kleiner (Telekommunisten Network)
The Price and Value of Free Culture
One has to deal with issues of freedom, creativity, participation and property when one releases content on the Net. Despite providing personal data to (advertising) platforms, there is the wish to exchange content and form genuine social networks. Can there be cultural commons through the internet? What’s the idea behind Copy-Left, and how can content producers and artists still survive economically?
Constanze Kurz and Dmytri Kleiner will discuss concepts like: the Creative Commons, the newly released CCC Kulturwertmark, and the “venture communism” proposed by the Telekommunist Network.
Constanze Kurz is a computer scientist and author, who works especially on surveillance technology. She and Frank Rieger are spokespersons of the Chaos Computer Club and together they published “Die Datenfresser” a book on data privacy protection. http://www.ccc.de/
Dmytri Kleiner is a software developer working on projects investigating the political economy of the Internet, and the ideal of workers’ self-organization of production as a form of class struggle. He is a founder of the Telekommunisten Collective and recently released The Telekommunist Manifesto through the Institute of Network Cultures. http://telekommunisten.net/
