PRESS RELEASE - PERSBERICHT

The Future of Hacking
Cybercrime or the end of scarcity?
A public dialogue organised by the Club of Amsterdam.



The term 'hacking' to most people refers to either Russian criminals stealing your creditcard or Chinese spies breaking into NATO. For those who call themselves hackers 'hacking' means the creative use of technology to do new and unexpected things. Thank old-media for this confusion.

In our hight-tech society of 2010 the realities of internet crime, electronic warfare and using technology creatively are both much more mundane and sometimes much more spectacular than portrayed in movies such as 'The Net'. Windows is still crap but people keep buying it while alternatives exist.

Meanwhile Wikileaks manages to run circles around the mightiest military in the history of the planet but despite this the wars still go on. Hacking changes a lot, but not always were we expect it.

What used to be the Star-trek communicator is called a smartphone now so the future of hacking might just be a lot more interesting than any old '90's science-fiction.



The speakers and topics are:

Frans Kolkman, Head High Tech Crime Unit East-NL
The future of Cybercrime and arresting Hackers

Will The Police in Future be able to catch the bad guys. What are the possible problems. What is the International perspective. Traditional crimes in a country with boarders vs. crimes in a digital world without borders. What does that mean for Law Enforcement in the world. We will take a look into the technical problems involved witch possibly occur if you want to fight Hackers in the future. What kind of privacy problems will occur. What kind of privacy invasive measures are still acceptable for society.

Martijn Aslander, lifehacker, connector and resourcerer
How to connect hacking with the possibilities of the network and information age

Martijn just wrote a book, title 'Easycratie' which is about how to organise in the network age. It covers pay-what-you-want, lifehacking, the age of acces and lots more.... in his presentation, Martijn will try to connect a lot of thinking from the hacking world with the future of organising.

Alper Çugun, Intendant, Monster Swell
Civic duty in a hyper-connected world

The Internet of Things is an abstract term for something that is quickly becoming real. The world is being filled with sensors and actuators, all of which are linked into systems and being fed back to us with real and virtual displays. This is changing the fabric of society and the definition of what society is. It is our responsibility as citizens of this hyper-connected world to hack our environments to work better however we can.
