Becoming Jack Flack: Real Life Cloak and Dagger

857

Published on

Are you on too many social networking sites? Have all of your exes found you on Facebook Are you worried the NSA is watching you? (They are!)

If the fuzz came looking, how easy it would be for them to find you? We bring you this abridged guide to becoming (and staying) anonymous. Privacy is your right, anonymity is your path, and we will be your guide.

We address anonymity at three progressively comprehensive levels – whether you just want to CLOAK your tracks, go undercover at the DAGGER level, or go completely off the grid and be a HERMIT. In this 50 minute session, arcon (Adam Bregenzer) and dr.kaos (Taylor Banks) explore some of the issues, challenges, and sacrifices you will encounter. After this talk, if you don’t cut up your credit cards, we will!
