- Frank Rieger, spokesperson, Chaos Computer Club, Berlin
- Mark Tribe, NY-based artist, founder of Rhizome, assistant professor of modern culture and media studies at Brown University
The discussion will be about hacktivism in broad terms, including the enormous influence of the Internet and new media on global activism.
