Ein Vortrag von Paula auf der GPN18.

Cyberspace has been defined and predicted in many ways through the years. From the H.G.Wells' '_World Brain_' to William Gibson's '_consensual hallucination_', distributed technology and the internet has been a, inspiring communication revolution.

The influence of the ideas which grows on social networks as well as the huge personal information left by the users, makes the internet a target for governments and private companies. The** distributed, open and anonymous** nature of the internet is in danger due to **massive surveillance, censorship, security attacks and manipulation**. This is what some people calls cyberwar. In this war, in its front line, there's where the **hackers** are.

In the speech I'd like to approach to the cyberwar concept, internet censorship, massive surveillance and which is the role of the hackers in it, either in hacktivism and under governments orders.
