Trippki Events are excited to be partnering up again with the true Cypherpunks event Hackers Congress Paralelni Polis, Prague.
In a year when digital identity and personal data has grabbed much attention, it is worth noting that this year also celebrates the 100th anniversary of world mandatory passportization
The organisers see this as “a nasty dehumanization, carefully marking all people by their governments, stealing their biometrics, strengthening the power of territorial states and suppressing the liberty of individuals”.
There remains however “the possibility to choose a suitable permanent residency, to create international companies, to get a better passport and to use state cheats to hack the tyrant”.
Paralelni Polis advocate the use of cryptographic technology to regain privacy, to save freedom, to step up from the first constrained realm and to build the second one. Achieve new freedom using globality and flexibility.
Opt-out of the system!
What better city to host this event than Prague, a city with a long history of struggle for human rights, famously demonstrated by its defenestrations (literally throwing the bad people out of windows) in the 15th and 17th centuries. Brutal oppression by the Nazis in the Second World War was followed by Soviet occupation until the Prague Spring in 1968 showed the first emergence of anarchist tendencies, to defy their communist masters, albeit for a few months. Since the fall of the Soviets in 1989, Prague has also become one of the most popular tourist cities in Europe, famous for its architecture, art and lively night-life. The music scene varies from classical music in beautiful baroque churches to opera in the State Opera house, from jazz to techno, all best in breed. For food and drink, Prague is rightly known for its excellent beer, beef and dumplings, gingerbread and pastries. Enjoy your hard won freedoms!
Once again there is a great line up of speakers some of them listed below:

It’s an event filled with great talks and interesting people who come together to network, share ideas and amalgamate to shape the public discourse in evolving and expand into a freer open society that promotes economic, social and digital freedom for all. We owe it to our kids and the generations beyond them.
Visit some interesting attractions, wander the streets in search of fine architecture or sample the various delights, indulge in traditional food or check out the cool clubs. For further info check out an earlier blog called Hackatoshi’s Flying Circuit 12th July.
