What is it about?

We bought 22 hard-drives at an e-waste dump in Ghana.
From 5 of them we recovered data and we bring this data to this years 32C3 Congress!

Together we want to explore questions like:
* What kind of data did we find on this hard-drives?
* How can this data be (ab)used?
* How would you deal with this data breach?


Who can participate?

We are looking for hackers, artists and activists to deal with this data!
Data as waste, waste in the sense that it is deleted, dumped in the ‘recycle bin’ on our desktop, yet possible to be recovered.
And waste as resurfacing data on hard-drives physically located at one of the largest e-waste dumps in the world.
