The objective of the day is to acquaint everyone with the concept of anonymity both as a social and political strategy and technical concept.
The day will start by looking at the use of the concept of anonymity in different contexts: cultural artifacts, law, politics and activism. Then we will go on to look at how the concept has been translated into digital systems, who is for and against the different translations, and how all of this relates to concepts like privacy, data protection, identity and surveillance.
Finally, we will look at the prototype of a game in which the players simulate different versions of anonymous communication protocols. The game still requires much refining, which hopefully we have the opportunity to start doing in the afternoon.
