Interview with Telecomix Hacktivists Peter Fein and The Doctor

In this video Technoccult TV speaks with Peter Fein and The Doctor of the digital activist group Telecomix, which worked to keep the Internet available in the middle east during the Arab Spring by providing dial-up Internet access and even using fax machines to send information into Libya. The Doctor also works on the wireless mesh darknet project Project Byzantium. In this interview we talk about what Telecomix does and why it matters.

This interview has been a long time coming. It was conducted at Contact Summit in October 2011. It was recorded at the end of a long day and we were all pretty tired. Please excuse the background noise, this was the quietest place we could find.

    If thes middle East Dictators were smart they would allow the internet. The internet is very handy for monitoring what anti-establishment types are up to. One thing they could do for example is create an “alternative news site” where people freely contribute articles and post their ant-establishment thoughts.

      Oh I know what you’re talking about.  The only people not using mental telepathy to coordinate their cells are the false flag operations.

      By the way, did you get that package?
