Ben Dalton: Superheroes Still Need Phoneboxes

Ben Dalton: Superheroes Still Need Phoneboxes

This talk asks how we might plan for the continuation of a privacy sustaining internet in light of growing trends in enforced identity checking and demonisation of everyday anonymity. It presents a 'free phonebox' project, which was tested at the FutureEverything art and technology festival in 2014, as an example of a social-technical system that promotes identity ambiguity in communication through the sharing of 'free' mobile phone minutes between strangers.
