The tension between the old and known, and the new and unknown increases.
The third revolution of production is unleashing its power into an unstable and unsettled world.
Metaphors, narratives, concepts, and explanations change - and fail to grasp what is ahead of us.
Information is power, and software - its embodiment - eats the world. While some cling to the ideas and ways of the overcome age, the new is still too fresh to fully embrace.
The old guard is building a prison of bits and bytes, drones, cameras, databases and hostile AI.
Their goal: To cement the old structures of power for eternity while the masses continue to blissfully consume their selves. That may not happen.
It is up to us to chart the new waters, draw the maps, tell the stories, and build the tools that will shape our future for lifetimes to come.
Our time is now. Ready or not, the digital totality is upon us.

Unique industrial multi-purpose professional event space in the heart of Holešovice district in Prague ideal for presenting various projects and hosting community events.
Paralelní Polis is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit organization that brings together art, social sciences, and modern technologies. The ideas of liberty, independence, and innovative thinking and development of society are the main underlying foundations the whole project is built upon.
The project intends to remain state free as it operates entirely without support from the government, and most of the funds come from voluntary contributions of our donors and partly from commercial activities such as running a unique coworking space and the world's first bitcoin-only cafe.
It was founded by members of a contemporary-art group Ztohoven, and Slovak and Czech hackerspaces. Its main goal is to promote economic, social and digital freedom. We try to be a vocal voice of freedom in order to shape the public discourse, and ultimately work towards a freer future.
We are grateful for any past or future efforts to spread the news about Hackers Congress within and beyond your community.
The well-loved cypherpunk event is back - this time warning of the impending Digital Totality
