Future of Offline Filesharing
A collaboration between STRP, MU and Baltan Laboratories

In the era of growing Internet surveillance, filtering, ACTA, 3-strikes and censorship, offline data sharing is becoming more and more important for freedom of communication. Centred around the projects Dead Drops by Aram Bartholl and PirateBox by David Darts, this masterclass aimed to find more and new ways to share data in an offline mode. What is the best way to send a file to a friend? How can I store data anonymously in public space? What are the best components to build up a local offline sharing grid? Will animals play a role in the future of offline filesharing?
Participants explored these questions and learned everything from Aram and David to be able to make their own Dead Drops and PirateBoxes. They have created their own new ideas for offline filesharing around the Strijp-S terrain in Eindhoven.
