In this episode, interviewing Paul Levy and Becky Hogg.

Just me, Robin Catling hosting things today, but I’m not alone, as we have not one but two guests.

First up is Paul Levy, from Cats3000, Rational Madness and the Critical Incident un-conference, who will be talking about Learning to Dance with Spiders.

We’ll follow that with an interview I recorded about a month ago (before I got caught up with OGG Camp). Our second guest is Becky Hogg, journalist, activist and author of the book Barefoot into Cyberspace.

Becky Hogge Barefoot into Cyberspace: Adventures in Search of Techno UtopiaAuthor of Barefoot into Cyberspace – Adventures in Search of Techno Utopia
Through activism and journalism covering hacker counter-culture, from Stallman and Lessig, the Chaos Club to WikiLeaks Julian Assange and Rop Gonggrijp, quote:

“I think most of what were fighting still today in the world is incompetence. Most of what we’re fighting is stupidity, and maybe a little bit of opportunism. There is also the ominous, control-seeking large corporate interests.”

“We come in peace. We’re not called Chaos Computer Club because we cause chaos. If anything, a lot of our collective work has actually prevented chaos by pointing out that maybe we should lay some decent virtual foundations before we build any more virtual skyscrapers.”
