File exchange has been a controversial topic since the very beginning of the Internet.
Today, peer-to-peer file sharing is almost synonymous to piracy - yet it is just a way of sharing information directly between two computers.
- How can you simply and easily share files?
- How can you let someone download a file directly from your computer?
- How would you get around having to avoid using commercial services like Google Docs, Vimeo or Dropbox to share your images, texts or videos?
- Is there a way to skip the cloud and distribute your content directly while remaining in control of file distribution?
The Serve from Home
workshop will answer those questions and will teach you how to turn your desktop computer, laptop or may be even an Android tablet into a fully fledged Internet server. You will learn how to share files, host webpages, receive messages from friends and much more - all without having to use any intermediate service (Internet connection is required), directly, using your own computer and while maintaining certain level of privacy and anonymity.
Lower your digital foot-print and prepare for a global information's apocalypse!
