Talks & workshops, AND Festival 2013: NETworkshop / Julian Oliver & Danja Vasiliev (2013)
3 & 4 October 2013
During this intensive, two-day workshop students learn how to manipulate computer networks and how they can be used to manipulate us. By learning about routing, addressing, core protocols, network analysis, network packet capture and dissection, students become dexterous and empowered users of computer networks.
In this day two of the workshop students learnt to read network topologies as political control structures, seeing how corporations and governments shape and control the way we use computer networks. Studying these power structures by tracing the flow of packets as they pass over land and sea.
Students will interacted with a remote computer on the Internet using just the command line: analysing network routes, sending and receiving messages and learning how they can use that computer as a means to reach machines on internal, non-Internet networks.
