I spent the last weekend at the Gulasch Programmier Nacht (GPN) in Karlsruhe. Organized by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC), the GPN is an annual meeting of hackers and nerds, who meet to hang around, listen to talks, and eat Gulasch (goulash). I already read a lot about CCC events and finally made it to one. The people, the location, and the organization were really great.
The GPN was hosted by the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie (ZKM), a high school for arts that has a museum attached. Currently, there’s a great exhibition about surveillance.
