Discussing the philosophical position which lies behind decentralised systems and networks, Jaromil will examine the value systems that they give rise too. Emphasis will be placed on his open source software development, network typologies and systems effects.


Jaromil aka Denis Roio is an artist, hacker and activist inspired by the “free and open source software” ethics; his artworks and theoretical publications focus on computer viruses, live poetry, ASCII art, digital video and independent media practices. He is also creator of the dyne:bolic operating system and more software applications commonly found on GNU/Linux/BSD distributions. In 2009 he was awarded with the Vilém Flusser Award.
