November 7th 2PM: Data carving with Danja Vasiliev and Gordan Savicic

    * information excavation, digital archeology, offline privacy

During the workshop we will explore the contents of found hard-disks
(hard-disque trouvÃ). Using methods borrowed from computer digital
forensics participants will peek into the lives of others - former
owners of scavenged hardware. Hard-disks as the most intimate part of
any computer system. In case of a personal computer - the most
intimate part of person's life. Deductively, we will try to discuss
and recreate 'psyche' portraits of those strangers and restore the
time-lines that otherwise would have faded away. In the times of
paranoiac privacy awareness we forget that online is not the only
place to loose your identity. Although more and more personal data is
stored on the Internet servers it is still written to
hard-disks. There were several reports about Internet server's
hard-disks ending up on flea-markets, being sold for little money.


By the end of the workshop all the hard-disks and/or the data will be

    * Workshop prerequisites:

All participants are asked to go local flea-markets or second-hand
shops to pick up few old hard-disks. You may try eBay as well. Older =
better, those disks don't need to be of large capacity, in fact 8-16
Gigabytes is the best size to be able to analyze it during one-day
session. They also don't need to have any operating system. Make sure
the disks are 3.5â and have standard IDE interface.

Everybody is also expected to bring laptops (PC, Intel Macs) capable
of booting from USB-sticks or CDs and equipped with USB2.0
interfaces. GNU/Linux command line knowledge will be advantageous,
however it is not required.

Workshop is lead by moddr_ - Danja Vasiliev and Gordan Savicic,
experimentalists and interventionists on the edge of digital life and
everyday technology. http://moddr.net

Fee: 10 euros (all materials and food!)

Workshops led by field-expert practitioners extend over realms of code
and embedded code, environmental code, noise, transmission and
reception, and electromysticism. Workshops solely utilise free
