DEFCON 201 LIVE STREAM SPECIAL: Hacker Spring Triple Threat (LibrePlanet, DEF CON China, PancakesCon 2)
This weekend after the DEFCON 201 Four Year Anniversary from March 20th to March 21st we will have a marathon of three hacker conferences that you can watch and interact with us on our DC201 LIVE Stream! Joined by Sidepocket (and possibly other DC201 Members) as our eyes go bloodshot from lack of sleep and late night hacks!
Date: Saturday, March 20th 9:30 AM EST — 5:30 PM EST
LibrePlanet is the annual conference hosted by the Free Software Foundation. LibrePlanet provides an opportunity for community activists, domain experts, and people seeking solutions for themselves to come together in order to discuss current issues in technology and ethics. The theme for LibrePlanet 2021 is Empowering Users.
Over our thirty-five years of campaigning for freedom, the Free Software Foundation has seen countless people start to adopt free “as in freedom” software as a tool to affect meaningful change in their communities. When users have the freedom to study, change, share, and contribute to the software that they depend on, they are empowered to take charge of their own digital lives.
In the face of the novel coronavirus, we have been inspired by people in the free software movement banding together to show how technology can make us safer and keep us connected without compromising our freedoms. Our work has been motivated by seeing people help others move away from proprietary tools that embrace corporate control and government bulk surveillance. Movements like this help build a future that empowers users and their communities rather than the harmful business models of monopolistic proprietary software companies.
