Boom Toolkit for Covid-19 #1: Freedom and Mass Digital Surveillance

New Boom Broadcast series premieres with episode on digital rights

The context in which we're living calls for reflection, sensing, and seeking knowledge. Boom Festival, and especially at the Liminal Village and the Being Fields, nurtures places in which we look at the world and explore new models.

As such, we are approaching various thinkers, doers, planners, celebrators and changemakers to share their insights about the present and the future.

Covid-19 is bringing to the surface the positive and negative potential of centralised and decentralised software, contact tracing and other technologies. We spoke to Markus Beckedahl, one of the founders of re:publica, Europe‚Äôs largest internet and digital society conference, and founder of netzpolitik.org, Germany's most known media outlet on digital rights issues.
