If you hang out at K67_Urban Router try to spot Ray and play with him. If you are nice and he likes you take a look at the files he has on him. It s recommended you have a Leckerli or extension wire at your hands! :) Based on DeadDrops

While Sjoerd (THX!!) was killing the pool we still could share files through the battery powered wifi Piratebox attached on his board!! No board sides please!!… ;)
This was one of a series of experiments we, David Darts and I, did during a 3 day Offline Filesharing Workshop at Baltanlabs Eindhoven, Netherlands last week. The box below was donated to the skatepart ‘Area 51‘. Go there and check it out! Had a great time!! Thx to Baltan, MU and David!! More docu to come…

Great explanatory video! Thx guys!!
A few days ago The Pirate Bay announced that in future parts of its site could be hosted on GPS controlled drones. To many this may have sounded like a joke, but in fact these pirate drones already exist. Project “Electronic Countermeasures” has built a swarm of five fully operational drones which prove that an “aerial Napster” or an “airborne Pirate Bay” is not as futuristic as it sounds. ….
Love it!! :) Great vid! Congrats Jerome!
“How to survive the post Internet censorship apocalypse – (Exhumed DeadDrops travel through publics transports)
In a world where the Internet is being more and more monitored and filtered, there is a urge to find new ways to send and share data over uncensored networks.
Apart from the traditional computer networks, there are other kind of networks that could be used to transfer data from point A to point B in a Point-to-Point way without worrying too much about technical solutions to counterfeit Internet censorship and stupid copyright laws.
The public transport network is one of them and it can be used to anonymously transfer data via physical devices like USB keys or memory card at a quite reasonable speed compared to usual networks, especially when transferring large volumes of data.
The WalkingDeadDrops project proposes a solution to send data (using a USB key duct taped under a seat) to someone else in a city (video was shot in Paris).
In a way, that’s the Wifi version of you carrying laptops, phones, portable hard drives, DVDs, USB keys. … “
Congrats guys! great work!! See also pirate box.
unCloud is an application that enables anyone with a laptop to create an open wireless network and distribute their own information. Once it is launched, a passerby using a mobile internet device can connect to this open wireless network. The person running the application can decide what information is shown in any web address. Users can access information wirelessly while at the same time remain disconnected from the internet. unCloud does not depend on a remote datacenter, instead it can be run from a laptop, making it an ideal application to run in a train or at a café.

A dropper from Bellingham, Washington started his own little offline network to promote his twice monthly offline magazin “anti matters” for “… subversive news, critical information, and controversial commentary on the planet we live on and the new world that is emerging from the ashes of the old one.”

The anual congress by Chaos Computer Club germany (#28C3, the 28th year) last week was great. Besides all kinds of interesting action I also gave a short Pechakucha talk on deaddrops.
