Your Infrastructure Will Kill You

The past century our infrastructure has seen both massive expansion and heavy centralization. When it fails, it fails big -- this is the reality of our modern interconnectedness. We live in a world of crumbling bridges and bankrupt states, and our infrastructure will kill us. The people we’re relying on to keep us safe are trying to accomplish long-term risk management with short-term thinking. So, what now? We can't opt out, but we can become more resilient, and we can start thinking about risk differently.

In this talk, we'll look at threat modeling in the real world, six ways to die, failing states, that big party in the desert, the failure of the humanitarian project, algae and the U.S. military, large-scale natural disasters, the power grid, and many other things. The problems we face are big in every sense of the word -- they involve some of the biggest things we've ever built -- but the solutions may not be. Can non-governmental networks step up when governments fail to provide basic services? Can we avoid a further expansion of neoliberalism in a post-infrastructural state? Are the power structures embedded in our infrastructure cultural destiny? What happens when maker culture grows up?

Come find out, while you still have a choice.

Data Retention in the EU five years after the Directive

Why the time is now to get active

2011 will again be a crucial year in the battle against data retention and blanket surveillance. The EU Commission is planning to publish its review of the directive in December (right in time before 27C3), and the lobbying and PR battle has already begun. In six months from now, we will see the legislative proposal from the EU commission for the revision of data retention.

The talk will give a full picture of the legal state of play, what is going on in Brussels, what is already being done and of course where you can help. The speakers are closely involved in the process on the European and national level.

In December 2005, the European Parliament agreed to the data retention directive that introduced mandatory retention of the telecommunications behaviour of half a billion EU citizens and residents. That was a huge disappointment and perceived by many as the final opening of the floodgates. Frank Rieger and Rop Gongrijp at 22C3 even declared that "we lost the war" over privacy. But things turned out different than expected.

Now, five years later, a new privacy movement has risen in Germany and elsewhere, a number of constitutional courts all across Europe have declared national data retention laws illegal, a case against the whole directive is pending at the European Court of Justice, and the EU has a justice commissioner who openly said that she would not have suggested the whole thing in the first place, and a home affairs commissioner who voted against the directive when she was still a Member of Parliament.

The talk will give a full picture of the legal state of play, what is going on in Brussels, what is already being done and of course where you can help. The speakers are all active in European Digital Rights (EDRi.org) and are closely involved in the process on the European and national level.
