As I mentioned some days ago the organizing team thought about some
panels. In the schedule we have planned for six panels (Saturday
10:00-13:00 and 14:00-17:00) which usually should be populated by two
speakers so both have enough time to say what they have to say and
then have a combined discussion.
Of course feel free to organize workshops with a closer collaboration
of the organizing contributors. At best do it by this list but at
least tell us the results here.
Also if you think you have an idea for another panel please tell it.
The suggestion below combines only people with the same language. I
think a panel should not combine English and German because often
attenders choose on the language and a combination is thus bad for
To see what the people and their topics are please check
Also if you did not do so until now *please* correct your own entries
with the password you received from StefanMz.
Ok, now for the panels. The shortcuts behind the names are our ideas
and are only there to give you a quick idea of what the presentation
is about. The general idea is to group contributors who have a common
Edward Cherlin Simputer
Christof Beaupoil FreeHardware
While Edward will tell us about an already existing and big Free
Hardware project Christof will give us also some overview and a more
theoretical perspective on Free Hardware. People interested in Free
Hardware will probably be interested in such a panel.
Stefan Merten OHAProject
Christoph Spehr OHANetworks
Stefan and Christoph both will talk about
OrganisationHerrschaftAnarchismus (OHA) - a term coined in the
Oekonux project while discussing power structures as well as
organization in Free Software and other Free Projects. For those
interested in this probably the longest debate in Oekonux will be
interested to listen and contribute to this panel or may be
Marion Hamm Indymedia
J. Martin Pedersen FSwIndymedia
Indymedia is the common topic of Marion and J. Martin. Their
approach is also similar in comparing it to Free Software. A panel
made up of those two.
Yuwei Lin EMACS
Aputsiaq Janussen HackerEthic
While Yuwei looks at the development of EMACS (a big and old Free
Software project) which is a good example for a result of hacker
culture Aputsiaq based on the work of Pekka Himanen will give us
some insights on some possible hacker ethic. Sounds interesting to
combine these two.
Michael Zaiser SelfOrg
Sheen S. Levine Emergence
While Michael will present us some thoughts on some thoughts about
self-organization rooted in the natural sciences Sheen will tell us
about emergence phenomenons found in Free Projects. Both topics seem
similar so a panel is interesting.
Hans-Gert Graebe ProcessPrep
Stefan Matteikat ThingInternet
Hans-Gert as well as Stefan think about changes in the contemporary
way things are produced. Together they build an interesting panel.
Wolfgang Polatzek TransformEconomy
Thomas Atzert ImmaterialLabor
While Thomas' presentation is inspired by Empire and its view on
labor Wolfgang will present thoughts on alternative economy already
existing and how this can be transformed to another economy when
taking the lessons from Free Software into account. Both
presentations are thus concerned with labor and so make up for a
As you may have noted these are seven suggestions - i.e. one more than
To get things moving we assume your acceptance unless we hear concerns
until - hmm - Thursday. Changes may be done later also but please note
that we want to set up a schedule now.
