22C3 is over. It’s been an intense event.
For the first time since eight years I have been able to get the chance of pursuing a more or less personal project during such an event. Many people contributed to the Congress this time taking over much of my work in the recent years.
So I could do what I really wanted this time: I wanted to experiment with podcasting and produce a new kind of coverage for the event: personal interviews with speakers. The interviews are produced as episodes of the new Chaosradio Express podcast series with a german intro. Chaosradio Express is usually in german only, but the interviews are of course held in english.
In the interview, Joi talks about his way into the digital media and communications world, hackers, 22C3 and being a DJ in Chicago. He also shares many ideas and ideals with us that he stands for. I loved the atmosphere of the interview. Joi is a very bright and encouraging character.
I did three more interviews: with Régine Débatty (We Make Money Not Art), Eric Blossom (GNU Radio) and Jacob Appelbaum. They too are all very interesting characters and it was big fun for me to talk to all of them. Very gifted and lovely people. Thank you all very much for your time and dedication.
Joi apparently liked my podcasting setup. You’re welcome!
