Operation Scrooge

Recorded July 29, 2017

The Mistake Room, Los Angeles CA
Jennifer Moon (artist) and Alice Barker (information security expert + privacy advocate) examine the psychosocial nature of cybersecurity – the entanglement of emotion, intuition and manipulation inherent in even the most benevolent con.

A discussion on the prospects of resistance and decolonization through the use of decentralized networks, digital currencies and tactile approaches to hacking is followed by a round table on Scrooging : a form of conning coined by Jennifer Moon and inspired by the transformation of Ebenezer Scrooge.

A significant portion of a Scrooging mission involves in depth recon to determine what the target truly desires beyond binaries, hierarchies, and capital. Often it is some form of love.
