server to do? How can we use webrtc and p2p techniques to build internet

# PC 2.0
time : about 1 hour
This talk will be a followup to a popular blog post I made a few years ago: [Decentralization: I Want to Believe](http://adamierymenko.com/decentralization-i-want-to-believe/).
There's a so-called ["wheel of reincarnation"](http://catb.org/jargon/html/W/wheel-of-reincarnation.html) in computing in which things oscillate between centralized and decentralized paradigms. Today we are in the midst of what I call the "mainframe 2.0" era. Everyone else calls it "cloud." Here I am going to talk about what's next, about what I call "PC 2.0" and what I think it will look like and how we might get there.
I'm also going to discuss some of the reasons for centralization and why decentralization is hard. PC 2.0 is predicated on solutions to a wide array of challenges, as well as (like PC 1.0) on continued technological progress in areas like computing power, cost, and network bandwidth.

# Hackbases, infrastructure for postcapitalism
Speaker : David Potocnik / david@totalism.org / @dcht00
time : 30min + 30min (discussion)
Often hailed as some ultimate constructive and radical force, hackers are subsumed by the lifestyle logic of current advanced capitalist societies. To describe a common hacker is to describe a hobbyist - hanging out at the local hackerspace and playing with personal projects after necessary paid labour. This covers their subsistence, but also probably more or less directly powers the bullshit neoliberal political reality, with its destructive effects on society and nature.
Hackbases are a new type of institution to enable work in the other direction. They are hackerspaces you can also live in, for any period of time, with minimized need for dealing with (earning, spending) money. The goal is to design and spread a tech-forward model of infrastructure and a lifestyle, supporting free, full-time avantgarde technologists and people in general, serving the commons. This talk should equip and inspire you to visit one of the existing bases (like CHT in Lanzarote, Canary Islands @ http://totalism.org/), or even better, reorganize your living situation to start a new one.

# Apathy, and "My Pet Project"
contact: : dvn
Speaker : dvn
I see two systemic behaviours in the broad hacker community, which consistantly stifle progress, and I don't think it has to be this way.
Whether it's giving up on private communication due to societal pressure, or growing jaded from investing all your time into developing proprietary software for an ungrateful company, apathy is a grating force in open source communities. The second, and an arguabely bigger problem, is what I'm calling the "Pet Project" syndrome. People grow to love a software project like their own child, and often end up favouring, and defending it like it's their own child. This causes people to close their eyes to solutions others have already found, and creates a lot of parallel work.
I'd like to collaboratively discuss these issues, provide some examples, and maybe we can discover some solutions.

# Federated Wiki intro & plugin workshop
Speaker : Ksenia (changed speaker ???)
Federated Wiki is a wiki where people don't have to agree. It has a cute architecture which is a mix between a wiki and a version control.
At the venue we're planning to have a local Federated Wiki farm. Whoever is interested can learn how to set it up and use it. We would like to do an intro on the first day, and
and offer an additional workshop about building plugins for it. The author of this tool Ward only will be able to join us remotely as he's based in the US.

# Lessons learned from learning and teaching programming
i have been a programming apprentice for about two years. during this time, my friends and i ran a free, cooperative "anti-bootcamp" (http://cyber.wizard.institute/), and participated in a lot of informal collaborative learning in our friend group. i'd like to share with you some of the patterns and anti-patterns that i've run into learning programming as an adult with peers. this will include some of the things that were most tricky for me to learn and also some of the things we discovered that seemed to worked well when teaching.
Length: I am flexible. this talk can be longer or shorter based on the time you have available. i can do 20 minutes, but can also do up to an hour or down to 5 minutes. i am also flexible with regard to the content. if you think that a related or additional issue would be more relevant to the audience than what i've included, i'm happy to discuss modifications.

# Mapping the Megacity - Challenges of applying a developed world software standard to a devloping world context
Speaker : Hegazy
time : talk ~15 minutes, and 15 minutes discussion.
For the past 9 months a team has been trying to map all formal and informal transportation in Cairo in a digital format. Such digital transit information is generally incoded in GTFS, the General Transit Feed System. However, applying GTFS to the Egyptian context is a challenge: How do you encode Stops where none exist? How do you define 10 different sorts of microbuses each with their own conventions, defferntiating them from public buses when only one cetagory called 'bus' exists?
Public transportation in Cairo is an organic being in constant change, and a result of many individual solutions; not unlike squating. In this talk I will share the challenges of mapping the unmappable, and raise some interesing thoughts.

# Mapping the Megacity - Challenges of applying a developed world software standard to a devloping world context
Speaker : brabo
time : 5-10 minutes, discussion perhaps 10 min?
Some years ago I was inspired to take a list of known empty residences and transform it to a google maps so people could use it to find places to squat. I tried to build further on this by scraping real estate websites. Sadly, it is too big for me alone, and involves software I myself am not good enough at. So, let us all take a couple minutes to consider what we may be able to create here.

# How Stealth Refactoring is Wrecking our Codebases
Because management are perceived not to value refactoring, developers fear being “told off” for doing it. So we refactor less than we’d like to, and when we do, we often sneak it in, hidden amongst functional changes.
We know insufficient refactoring leads to technical debt. Stealth refactoring creates problems, too. Reviewing a diff mixing functional and non-functional changes is time-consuming and error-prone, costing money and introducing bugs. Also, stealth refactoring tends to focus only on the “geographical area” - the function, file or module - that we are “touching” at the time. What are the implications of that for the coherence and consistency of our codebases?
I will make some technical suggestions for optimising how we refactor, but the main issue is cultural. Is our shame around refactoring entirely due to management, or are devs responsible too? How can we sell simplicity to people who may not be aware of its value? Can we create a culture that legitimises - or even rewards! - a practice that is, after all, essential to developing good software?

but to invite people to look at the dystopia scenarios, set of tools and strategies which which might come in handy for navigating cybernetic totalitarianism. It is really a continuation of several long and short conversations I had with quite a few people,

Over the course of it's beta, from 2003 to 2007, Second Life transformed in vision from a peer-to-peer market society with no hierarchies and no scarcity, to a hypercapitalist society, driven by corporate verticals and labor exploitation. How did this happen? The aim of this talk is to surface patterns in communities, cultures, and socio-technical systems that make labor ownership difficult to build and enforce. Ultimately, we look toward the question: How can we prevent the present generation of idealistic developers, bent on subverting traditional mechanisms of application and data control, from falling into the same trap as Second Life?
