From Hippies to Hackers

January 21 @ 08:00 - 17:00

How Counterculture freed technology from the Establishment, and can do it again

1960s hippie counterculture gave us tie dye shirts and psychedelics, but also personal computers and the Internet, which they wrested from the hands of the military-industrial complex. In today’s age when tech giants seem to be the Establishment, where are the techno-utopian leaders of tomorrow?
Ahmed Kabil, Editor at the Long Now Barcelona, tells the story of how hippies became hackers who built a digital world that is—for better or worse—the one we live in today, and how we can reclaim a future of freedoms.
