Entschwörungstheorie spezial: Die Republik der Netzdynamiker

Ach, würde die Politik doch nur transparenter sein! Und würde doch nur moderner gewirtschaftet werden! Dann könnten wir endlich in der versprochenen Wunderwelt der sozialen Marktwirtschaft leben. Dazu müßten aber die böswilligen Politiker und verantwortungslosen Wirtschaftsbosse verschwinden, die nur noch mit Kungelei, Betrug und Terror ihre überholte Welt gegen den Sieg der internetgestützten Vernunft verteidigen können. In der Idee einer Weltverschwörung hat sich im Laufe der letzten zwei Jahrhunderte ein breites Repertoire an Vorstellungen von schlechter Herrschaft und unfairem Wettbewerb angesammelt, aus dem sich empörte Demokraten jederzeit bedienen können, um den Irrtum zu prolongieren, Demokratie wäre irgendwie gar keine Herrschaft und Kapitalismus würde gar nicht grundsätzlich auf Ausbeutung beruhen. So sehr das Internet auch zur Überprüfbarkeit von Verschwörungsmythen beigetragen hat, so wenig scheint es doch auch und gerade bei vielen Netzaktivisten an den grundlegenden Auffassungen zur Gesellschaftsordnung geändert zu haben. In der vergleichenden Betrachtung des Verschwörungsdenkens, des alltäglichen Politik-Diskurses und einiger unter Netzaktivisten verbreiteter politischer Auffassungen liegt die Möglichkeit, nicht mehr wie Batman darüber zu verzweifeln, daß man die Welt einfach nicht sauber bekommt. Das Problem besteht nicht darin, daß Staat und Kapital nicht richtig funktionieren, sondern es besteht in ihrem Funktionieren.

A Twitter Revolution without revoluationaries?

"Its become common for pundits and politicians alike to laud the Internet as the ultimate technology of liberation that could crush authoritarian regimes and replace them with democracies. We have seen a barrage of such predictions in the wake of the so-called Twitter revolution in Iran. But is it really true? How are authoritarian governments responding to the Internet threat? Could the Internet be the very technology that would prolong their stay in power? In this talk, Evgeny Morozov, a contributing editor to Foreign Policy and a Yahoo! fellow at Georgetown University, will examine how far we can go in predicting the Internets true impact on authoritarianism."

Freedom of expression in the net

"Freedom of expression is for most participants of the re:publica a completely natural right. In many other nations freedom of expression and information outlets are restricted from cititzens. The panel will discuss this situation: What is life like in nations with a strong net censorship and government control of news flow? Which experiences do bloggers make when they point out misdoings? Inspite of the control, how can one use the internet to express their opinions freely, to network and inform oneself?"

Technology for Transparency

"Transparency as a cure for the ills of modern democracy has become such a highly prized concept that the word was banned from use at Michigans Lake Superior State University due to mis-use, over-use, and general uselessness. Such lexical protests havent stopped hundreds of websites from popping up all over the world, grounded in the belief that making government information more accessible to ordinary citizens through sexy web 2.0 interfaces will lead to greater accountability of elected officials and improved governance. But is this the reality? Do we have any concrete proof that technology projects which aim to promote transparency and civic engagement have an actual political and social impact? By looking at case studies of some of the most innovative technology for transparency projects from Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa we will evaluate their effectiveness, aggregate their best ideas, and make suggestions for future improvements."

Feministische Netzkultur 2.0

"The revolution will be blogged oder doch nicht? Seit 2005 mit dem Genderblog das erste größer angelegte deutschsprachige Gemeinschaftsblog rund um feministische und queere Themen gegründet wurde, folgten viele weitere erfolgreiche feministische Blogs. Das 2006 gegründete Mädchenblog oder die Mädchenmannschaft, welches 2007 startete, haben mittlerweile einen ähnlichen Bekanntheitsgrad erlangt, und aus Österreich berichtet dieStandard.at seit 2000 auf hohem journalistischen Niveau über nicht nur für Frauen relevante Themen. Obwohl die deutschen Blogcharts maßgeblich von von Männern betriebenen Blogs dominiert werden, hat sich so eine immer populärer werdende Nische mit feministischen Inhalten gebildet. Spätestens mit Deutschlands erstem feministischen Magazin über Popkultur, dem Missy Magazine, haben so feministische Inhalte den Sprung in etablierte Medien geschafft. Doch bedeuten die gepriesenen Weiten des Internets auch unendliche Möglichkeiten? Journalistische Arbeit im Blogformat verspricht viele Freiheiten, birgt aber auch einige Risiken: So sind feministische Interventionen sehr einfach möglich, werden aber auch regelmäßig mit Kommentarkriegen und antifeministischen Anfeindungen abgestraft. So berichtete bereits auf der re:publica09 die Mädchenmannschaft über eigene Erfahrungen und Chancen des feministischen Bloggens und rief zur On- und Offlinevernetzung von bloggenden Feminist innen auf. Nun stellt sich die neue, junge Szene die Frage: Wo soll es hingehen mit der neuen Bewegung? Ist die Sichtbarkeit feministischer Inhalte im Netz gestiegen? Geht es nur um Gegenöffentlichkeit oder wird der Schritt weiter in Richtung Kampagnenfähigkeit gewagt? Reicht das Web2.0 als Vernetzungsintrument oder sollen die Netzwerke auch offline weiter ausgebaut werden? Sollen (angehende) Feminist innen nur Empowerment erfahren oder werden die Blogs im Zuge der neuen Medienmacht gar feministische Macht- und Druckinstrumente? In diesem Panel wollen Vertreter innen von Mädchenmannschaft, Mädchenblog, Genderblog, Missy Magazine und dieStandard.at miteinander und mit allen Interessierten ebendiese Chancen, Risiken und aktuelle Entwicklungen von queer-feministischen Blogs und Online-Medien besprechen."

Netzneutralität in Deutschland

Das Thema Netzneutralität wird auch in Deutschland immer aktueller. Spätestens mit der Verabschiedung des sogenannten Telekom-Paketes auf europäischer Ebene ist die Frage in der deutschen Politik angekommen, ob wir verlässliche Regeln für Netzneutralität brauchen – oder ob der Markt ausreicht. Genau diese Frage wollen wir in diesem Panel auch diskutieren.

WikiLeaks

Through its publications as the world’s only functioning whistleblowing platform, WikiLeaks has exposed corruption, political murder, torture as well as abuse of power on all continents. But not only is WikiLeaks publishing the unpublished. Increasingly WikiLeaks has to preserve investigative stories that classic newsmedia cannot defend against those abusing legal systems in order to stiffle freedom of speech and supress critical voices. According to the press, the platform has in its short existance produced more scoops than the Washington Post in the past 30 years. It has been called the most successful journalist operation in the world, and its internet address been said to be the home of free speech. Besides offering the most sophisticated legal and technical infrastructure for the protection of the press and its sources, the recipe for this success is very simple: WikiLeaks is upholding its principles, no matter what. Join us for a session about the state of the media, possibilities to defend our historic record and requirements for the future to preserve the 4th estate as an independent mechanism to control those in power.

Auf der Überholspur zum Stoppschild

"Das Internet: ein (rechtsfreier) Raum mit dunklen Ecken, Rohre, eine verschworene Gemeinschaft oder doch eher eine Telefonanlage? Oder eine Datenautobahn mit Leitplanken und einer Überholspur? Und auf der Überholspur ein Stoppschild? Wenn Politiker über das Internet sprechen, dann greifen sie oft zu blumigen Bildern (Metaphern) und schrecken auch vor Stilblüten nicht zurück. Diese Metaphern sollen hier vorgestellt und analysiert werden, damit auch klar wird, welche Vorstellungen und Missverständnisse sich dahinter verbergen. Da es sich bei der re:publica um eine Mitmachveranstaltung handelt, wäre es schön, wenn Ihr sonderbare Äußerungen über das Internet möglichst schon vorher dem Referenten mitteilt, der sie dann aufgreifen, kategorisieren und analysieren wird."

Free Culture in Brasil

"April 8th, 2010 was an important date for Brazil. That is when a draft bill named Marco Civil was launched, aiming to protect fundamental rights online, such as privacy, freedom of expression, net neutrality, open standards, and open governmental data. Looking from the outside, that might seem natural for a country like Brazil, which is internationally known for being supprtive to the idea of free culture. However, that is not the full story. My talk is going to describe the fierce debates and struggles inside Brazil that led to the proposal of the Marco Civil. It will show how the Marco Civil became a response to years of national and international pressures for the radicalization and criminalization of the internet. For many years, other draft bills had been proposed (and almost approved), creating crimal conducts such as unlocking a cell phone, punishable with up to 4 years in jail. Or yet, simply prohibiting the use of the internet in political campaigns. I will describe how these radical proposals ended-up mobilizing the Brazilian civil society to claim for more balanced laws. The Marco Civil establishes probably one of the first collaborative legislations sponsored by a government. It was through a process of open public participation (available at www.culturadigital.org/marcocivil), divided into 90 days. For the first 45, an online discussion took place about the principles that should govern the new law. More than 800 substantial comments were received, from private and public interest groups. Based on those comments, the text of the law was then drafted, and opened again (on April 8th, 2010) for public participation. The final text will then be consolidated, and officially introduced to Congress. In short, the Marco Civil might be an important inspiration for other countries facing the trends of radicalization and criminalization of internet-related laws. In my talk, I will describe how we got there."

Flattr - Social Micro Donations

Flattr experiments with a new way on taking on the long lasting question - how will people make money on the internet? Theres always been a lot of talk on how people will make money on what they create on the internet. The focus of these discussions has always been how to compensate for previous losses that occurs in the paradigm shift to the Internet. Flattr tries to tackle this problem in another way why shouldnt everybody have the possibility to be compensated or paid for content? And why is everything easier on the internet than in the offline world, except payments? Previous spokes person for The Pirate Bay, Peter Sunde Kolmisoppi, gives his story on why he created Flattr and how he believes this experiment may benefit art and culture.

Net neutrality and threats to fundamental rights in europe

Yet, entertainment industries see the Net as a threat to their existing business models, mostly based on controlling distribution channels of information. Worse, telecom operators see new opportunities in monetizing restrictions to Internet access. The interests of both groups are now converging with the help of a portion of the political class wary of the way the Net upsets their objective of controlling the public sphere so as to retain power. Several legislative projects are contemplating different ways of restricting access to the Net: from the provisions on operators’ contracts in the “Telecoms Package” directives to website blocking in the name of child protection, from the ongoing war against file sharing lead by the entertainment industries in Europe to the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement currently being negotiated at the global level… Restrictions to our access to the Net, from the most obvious (cutoff in the “HADOPI” law in France, censorship in China), to the most subtle (blocking of selected aplications or services, bandwidth prioritization or reduction, etc.) are as many restrictions to our fundamental freedoms, including the most essential freedom of expression. Are these different regulatory projects turning into a global war on the Internet, therefore a war on our freedoms? What is the state of the play? What can we do as citizens?

Net Neutrality and Free Speech

When most people think free speech, they think of government censorship. But in fact the architecture of speech can be much more important. In my talk I examine the history of private censorship and the question of Net Neutrality as a speech doctrine for the 21st century.

Who wants to restrict the internet and how?

Copyright enforcement measures to address the Internet have many implications for users. It’s not just about cutting people off, such as the so-called “3-strikes”. Depending on how the measures are constructed, they could means other kinds of restrictions on the Internet as well. In Europe, Members of the European Parliament in Brussels and many European citizens, were taken by surprise when amendments enabling “3-strikes” mysteriously found their way into a review of telecoms law. The review, known as the Telecoms Package, went into EU law at the end of 2009. The question for Internet users is whether the Telecoms Package will prevent or permit 3-strikes. And what else will it allow? What is the relationship between copyright and the Internet? This presentation will discuss these questions, drawing on my PhD research.

Digital Natives with a cause?

As a growing population in emerging Information Societies, particularly in Asia, experience a lifestyle mediated by digital technologies, there is also a correlated concern about the young digital natives constructing their identities and expressions through a world of incessant consumption, while remaining apathetic to the immediate political and social needs of their times. Governments, educators, civil society theorists and practitioners, have all expressed alarm at how the digital natives across the globe are so entrenched in practices of incessant consumption that they have a disconnect with the larger external reality and contained within digital deliriums. They discard the emergent communication and expression trends, mobilisation and participation platforms, and processes of cultural production as trivial or unimportant. Such a perspective is embedded in a non-changing view of the political landscape and do not take into account that the Digital Natives are engaging in practices which might not necessarily subscribe to the earlier notions of political revolution, but offer possibilities for great social transformation and participation. The oldest Digital Native in the world – if popular definitions of Digital Natives are accepted – turned 30 this year, whereas the youngest is not yet born. In the last three decades, a population has been growing up born in technologies, and mediated their sense of self and their interactions with external reality through digital and internet technologies. These interactions lead to significant transitions in the landscape of the social and political movements as the Digital Natives engage and innovate with new technologies to respond to crises in their local and immediate environments. However, more often than not, these experiments remain invisible to the mainstream discourses. The mechanics, aesthetics and manifestation of these localised and contextual practices hold the potentials for social transformation and political participation for the future. This presentation looks at three different case studies to look at how, through processes and productions which have largely been neglected as self indulgent or frivolous, Digital Natives around the world are actively participating in the politics of their times, and also changing the way in which we understand the political processes of mobilisation, participation and transformation.

Obama Agonistes

In 2008, Barack Obama rode a wave of mass political participation to become the first African-American President in the United States. His campaign was widely described as a model for integrating bottom-up grassroots support–online and offline–with traditional top-down marketing. And his administration promised to transform government by making it more open, participatory and collaborative. How much has Obama delivered on these promises? And how much did he really change American politics? In this talk, Micah Sifry, co-founder of the Personal Democracy Forum and editor of techPresident.com will look at the myths, and realities, of Obama the candidate and president.
