Radio Four’s Click On and Hacktivism Research at King’s College London

BBC Radio 4’s flagship technology show Click On features politically motivated hacking, or hacktivism, on Monday 31 October 4.30pm. Dr Tim Jordan will be on the programme discussing his ongoing research into groups like Anonymous, Lulzsec and other hacktivist activities. The programme was recorded at the OccupyCityofLondon protest camp at St Paul’s Cathedral. Tim will be linking hactivisit political actions with current broader political struggles such as the protest camp and more widely in the Arab Spring. He will also try to connect the current wave of hacktivist action with earlier online political protest.

If you miss the programme on Monday it will remain available on the BBC
