Yes, I said cyber. Digital security and rights in international development coop

Cyber. the word entails controversy: hype, misunderstandings, misappropriation, and above all many yet unanswered questions. Due to this and especially now this notion and topic are becoming increasingly important within international cooperation. Between network policy and security policy, between cyber arms race and cyber cynicism, one thing is often left out: What about the digital security of the poorest and most remote regions and populations? The more countries like Germany address the protection of their own digital infrastructures, the more it becomes apparent that we also have a global responsibility in this regard. However, an official "cyber development policy" does not...

Stream of Consciousness

Streaming has become the most important way to distribute music in our age. Although the use of Spotify, Tidal, and other services has become mundane to the most of us - including musicians and labels - the key questions concerning streaming have not yet been explored: How does common streaming deal with data privacy and our music taste? Are there a business modell beyond the proceeds of the big publishing concerns? How does streaming and its economic conditions affect the music itself? Three protagonists of music in digital times are contributing to these questions in the panel presenting and discussing their own innovative approaches: Peter Harris, the founder of the alternative...

Future of Work: How can Germany be a leader in the Digital Economy?

This is a panel and audience discussion on how Germany can be a leader in the Digital Economy. Rather than copying the Silicon Valley model, Germany can forge a new “Way of Innovation” that ensures that a more tech-driven economy doesn’t further enlarge the gap between “haves” and “have-nots.” The right policies will build on German strengths in a way that enhances the virtuous circles of social capitalism.

Eratosthenes for the 21st Century: Inventing Cyber-Social Geography

Social media networks have meaningful and somewhat stable macro-structural topologies, which constitute a kind of terrain subject to mapping and dimensional analysis. Therefore one might view “sociocultural terrain” as organized in two intersecting planes: geographic and cyber-social. Throughout most of history, the geographical plane was where people associated, organized, traded, and struggled. In the 21st Century, the cyber-social plane is rapidly becoming equally if not more important as the dynamic locus of human relationships.

When the digital world is out of order

The age of digitisation has long been upon us. Companies therefore face major challenges in terms of security and IT-quality. The human factor plays a key role here. A typing error in the programming for “Amazon Web Services” (AWS) paralysed large parts of the Internet for several hours in 2017 causing 150 million dollars cost. Thus, one addressed subsystem accidentally took two other subsystems out of the network. This incident clearly demonstrates how dependent we are on just a few service providers. Only through jointly defined standards the reliability and stability of the entire Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry can be ensured.

Is Freedom the most expensive word? A journey to North Korea

Whereas contemporary states, societies and citizens are said to be interconnected and interdependent as never before in human history, North Korea appears as a sui generis void in international relations; a place beyond the realm of comprehension, being neither a part of our world nor of our era (…). The visuality of showing a dark North Korea serves as a discursive marker of difference. It helps to establish particular binary relations that distinguish, for instance between freedom / oppression, wealth / poverty, development / decline, and hope / despair.” The performative discussion on Freedom will take the audience on a journey through North Korea, through an interactive, multi media...

2016 will be remembered for painful disillusions, featuring technology as an important agent, but for once not a positive one. Critical approach to what can be achieved with it – speaking of political and social changes – exploded and moved mainstream debate to the other extreme. Media around the globe did not hesitate twice before blaming ‘algorithms’ and ‘data’ for major political failures. As if it was technology driving us, not the other way round… So who is responsible – human or artificial intelligence? Can humans regain control in this game? Let’s talk!

The challenges, chances and conditions. In short, democracy has been present on the Internet for a while.

Digital Commons, Urban Struggles and the Right to the City?

Today, the struggles for open and democratic access is highly relevant – both for the the urban as well as the digital: we can see globally networked and yet diverse struggles towards the strengthening of digital and urban commons, which are contrasted and challenged by accelerating processes of privatization, control and profit-oriented development. This talk will elaborate on the interdependencies of the „right to the city“ and the “right to the internet” and show how we explore the space in-between DIY networking and critical urban practice in a current EU-research project.
