re all,

we'll host a panel in Amsterdam on October 19th at 20:00 CET which
will be also streamed and recorded, trying to bring forward some
actual reflections about hacker's culture(s) and what one could call
ethical standingpoints. It risks to be a very interesting evening,
thanks to participants. Tune in (or come over if you are around..)

On October 19th, 2011 the Netherlands Media Art Institute will host
the panel "Ethical Hacking" as part of its exhibition "The Art of

Speakers in the panel will be Rop Gonggrijp, Karin Spaink, Patrice
Riemens and Heath Bunting. The discussion will be held in english,
streamed and recorded, and will last for approximately 1 hour and an
half. It will be moderated by Cecile Landman and Jaromil.  The
importance of technological developments in the digital world has
grown to a tremendous relevance for our societies, a phenomenon that
hacker communities did foresee since some decades. Meanwhile hackers
worked to develop ethical codes of conduct in dealing with technology,
especially when socially relevant.

Nowadays it may be so that the most striking conflicts revolving
around access to information, media and technology take place because
the controling powers show to be deaf to ethical concerns that hackers
put forward.

With this panel discussion we'd like to offer the audience a
passionate and actual debate around these issues, offering a first
hand perspective from voices that have significantly influenced the
Dutch hacking scene and beyond. In fact it is right in the Netherlands
where, already back in the 80s, hackers where very active in
developing what has become a worldwide network, knitted out of cables
and ideals.
