2010-10-21 - no. 2, Special: Indian Hackers and active Cyberwar feat. with K.S.Abhiraj
Todays Show is about the Indian Hackerscene and current developments in India concerning electronic voting machines, biometrical citizen recognition and cyber warfare. I think it's a quite controversial show, but I wanted to point the spotlight to an area that's not so often in the news. Therefore also the positions in the show may not be those of the audience nor those of myself, but I tried to portray and contrast them with respect to show the current situation. K.S.Abhiraj is the first Indian to represent Indian hackerspace and government to get interviewed at hackerspaces.
