Dado que algunos miembros de la lista asisten a las reuniones de IETF,
les envío el anuncio de este evento que se realiza pegado (parcialmente
solapado?) a la reunión de IETF.

Personalmente tengo ganas de ir... así que si alguno se quiere prender,
avise :-)

About OHM2013

OHM2013 - Observe. Hack. Make. is a 5-day international outdoor
technology and
security conference. OHM2013 is currently requesting proposals for content.

A motley bunch of around 3000 hackers, free-thinkers, philosophers,
geeks, scientists, artists, creative minds and others will convene from all
over the world for this informal meeting of minds to contemplate, reflect,
share, criticize, look ahead, code, build, and more.

An otherwise unassuming stretch of land, just 30km (20mi) North of
will be transformed into a colourful oasis of light providing a backdrop for
this unique event. It is an immersive experience, with an emphasis on

The four-yearly Dutch hacker camps provide a very open, friendly and relaxed
atmosphere, with a high level of knowledge. The campsite is buzzing with
energy, ideas and projects, not least because people from various
are interacting. It is a non-commercial community event where every
visitor is
also a volunteer.


OHM 2013 is the 7th edition in this line of events. The seed for these
sprouted in the late 80's hacker community embodied by 'Hippies from
Hell' and
the journal for techno-anarchists 'Hack-tic'.

In 1989 the Galactic Hacker Party was held at Paradiso, a public forum in
Amsterdam. This indoor event brought together pioneers at the frontiers
of the
internet to revel in the upcoming revolution, but also to be critical of the
power structures governing the then infant internet and its impact on

In 1993, four years later, Hacking at the End of the Universe was the first
open-air event in the series. Several hundred hackers set up camp in the
outdoors. While the internet was still not something many people had at
the whole campsite was already connected.

The landscape has changed much since 1989. New trends raise questions of
security, governance, sustainability and identity. The notion of hacking (to
use something in a creative way, not thought of when it was first invented)
has long spread to fields outside of Information Technology. The concepts of
open source and open standards are now commonplace.

At the same time, society is more and more dependent on technology.
Blind faith
in ICT in particular leads to erosion of democratic principles and human
rights. Society increasingly depends on hackers to act as its conscience on
these matters.

Now nearly every household has a connection to the internet, it is also
becoming a conduit for click-to-manufacture designs. Hackers expand
their focus
towards "manufacturing at home" collaboration projects using home-built 3D
printers, CNC-machines and laser cutters. A necessity as current economic
models are collapsing, both on the macro as well as the micro scale. The
post-industrial global society is on the verge of depleting both its
capital as well as its natural resources. Logistic chains feeding the
that produce all our gadgets and even our food span multiple continents.
Despite the global scale, those chains are fragile. When energy is becoming
sparse, the global transport routes will fail to be economically feasible.

Hackers can apply their critical curiosity and creativity to bring about
methods to cope with the upcoming changes. By building, for example,
means of electronic communication to ease the transition to an era where
Chinese gadgets and Japanese electronics can no longer be taken for
granted and
by arming society against authorities taking mobile telephony and the
offline in times of crisis. But perhaps even more important is going back to
the basics of production itself. Traditional crafts may become a matter of
survival when factories sourcing raw materials from far away are a thing
of the

Content matter(s)

The scope of this call for participation is not limited to the form of

Again, these ideas are by no means restrictive. Any content that might
the audience of technophiles at OHM2013 is welcome. Surprise and inspire the

Content for kids

At previous events, activities for children were organised by parents on an
ad-hoc basis - OHM2013 strives to bring content specifically aimed at
and adolescents. Initiatives targeting this new generation of hackers are
encouraged. Not only 'hacky' crafts and games, but also introductions to
advanced topics, like the complexities of the internet, privacy,
security, et cetera are to be expected.

Submitting content

Help make OHM2013 become the exciting, inspiring and awesome
event everyone is looking forward to. Submit your content now!

Also, if you know of someone whom you think should be present at
OHM2013, ask
