///// Technology Bio // Fascinated by Internet chat, Carlo contributed to IRC. Realizing it had reached its technical and political limits, he embarked on a journey to find the holy grail of communication protocols. Around 1995, Internet business took off. Carlo developed content management systems and content delivery networks for sites such as stern.de, zeit.de, spiegel.de. Contemporaneously he published the drafts for a federated protocol called PSYC. Making money using PSYC turned out much easier then getting the attention of the Open Source community, so the release was delayed and a software named Jabber won the race. Back then servers were safe and sniffing other people's messages was unethical. At some point in the 2000s Carlo realized that the HTTPS/X.509 certification system was hopelessly unsafe, so he conceived the Certificate Patrol add-on for Firefox that helps catching the man in the middle on the spot. Since the revelations of summer 2013 Carlo has been organizing #youbroketheinternet events, bringing people together that would like to rewrite a GNU Internet. //// Political Bio // When Carlo joined the Piratenpartei in 2009, there was already this vision in the air.. Pirates speaking of Liquid Democracy. The next year it got introduced and Carlo was among the first to use the technology in writing a participatory election programme. It made the Pirates different from any other political party: All had contributed, all were authors, not just sympathisers. This gave them a whole different kind of boost. Each one competent in every detail and boasting with motivation. The outcome was 8,9 percent of the Berlin vote, 15 seats in parliament, 13% in polls for upcoming national elections. In a survey Berliner Pirates said Liquid Democracy was the number one ingredient to their success. Since then, Carlo has been touring Italy; promoting, deploying and explaining the Liquid Feedback technology in the Italian Pirate Party and other interested groups. He has been authoring some law proposals at the Italian Chamber of Representatives on the topics of governmental transparency and collecting society reform. The newest law proposal is about enforcing the Secrecy of Correspondence in all telecommunication devices.

Claudio Agosti

Bio

Claudio Agosti (also know as vecna), in 16 years has reached a certain knowledge and experience based on this time distribution: 40% develop and broke security software, 20% experiment networking technology, 20% advocacy on digital human rights protection, "neverenough"% studies and hypothesis on the enemy moves. The Enemy is the market of the personal data, the politician scared by Internet, the users ignorance, theclosed source software and the NSA. This fight can't be win, but until you're able to hack technology you can produce infinite silver bullets.

Marco van Hulten

Bio

I believe in the freedom of information and the control thereover by all world citizens. This may concern almost anything, including software, scientific papers and governance. As a member of both the World Federalist Movement Netherlands (WFBN) and the Piratenpartij (PPNL), I feel it necessary to discuss the idea of democracy, which is heavily discussed within both these organisations. Besides my interest in politics, I have a profession as oceanographer. Specifically, I am developing free software that simulates the biogeochemistry of the ocean.
