DarkWallet & the next generation of uncensored markets


What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. The early attempts at shutting down centralised file sharing services ended up spawning stronger technology. Like a hydra, those of us in the community that push for individual empowerment are in an arms race to equip the people with the tools needed for the next generation of digital black markets. We will take a tour of various technological components; some old, some new that we can use to piece together the next generation of resilient uncensored markets. We will also wander into bigger questions about the role of technology, and efforts under way to carve out spaces of the future where we can survive, and thrive as freedom loving people. Technology is power, and a new front has opened in the struggle for freedom. These tools are for resource management, digital governance and new finance. Technology is not, and never will be neutral. Software is art. Tuesday 7pm. Potluck – bring some food, take some food. Open doors event (bring your friends). Big wooden doors, at the corner of Prince of Wales Rd, and Kentish Town Rd.
