What if one morning, the world woke up and found Hackers in charge of
government? What laws would a party of fearless, anti-authoritarians
rescind? What would we want our government to look like? Tying
together thoughts on the future, politics, lessons from hackerspaces
and four years spent in Washington DC, Nick Farr will present his take
on what an ideal government might look like. While presenting some
controversial viewpoints, this session is designed to provoke thought
and discussion on the governments we have, the world we want and what
hackers all over the planet can do in the mean time.
