Jacob Appelbaum lives in San Francisco and is an independent computer security hacker currently employed by the Tor Project.. He is the executive director and a founder of the hackerspace Noisebridge in San Francisco (www.noisebridge.net).
NoiseBridge is a space for sharing, creation, collaboration, research, development, mentoring, and learning. Noisebridge is also more than a physical space, it’s a community with roots extending around the world. The hackerspace provides infrastructure and collaboration opportunities for people interested in programming, hardware hacking, physics, chemistry, mathematics, photography, security, robotics, all kinds of art, and, of course, technology. Through talks, workshops, and projects, it encourages knowledge exchange, learning, and mentoring. As a space for artistic collaboration and experimentation, is open to all types of art – with a special emphasis on the crossover of art and technology. From hardware labs to electronics, cooking, photography, and sound labs, anything that’s creative is welcome.
The tor project is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis.
The meeting with Jacob Appelbaum is organized by the Digital Aesthetics Research Centre. Presented by Tatiana Bazzichelli.
