Referent: Eleanor Saitta
Eleanor Saitta is a hacker, designer, artist, writer, and barbarian. She makes a living and a vocation of understanding how complex systems operate and redesigning them to work, or at least fail, better.
Her work is transdisciplinary, using everything from electronics, software, and paint to social rules and words as media with which to explore and shape our interactions with the world. Her focuses include the seamless integration of technology into the lived experience, the humanity of objects and the built environment, and systemic resilience and conviviality.
Eleanor is Principle Security Engineer at the Open Internet Tools Project, a co-founder of the Trike threat modeling project, a contributor to the Briar decentralized delay-tolerant communications project, Technical Director at the International Modern Media Institute in Reykjavik, and is on the advisory boards of Geeks Without Bounds and the Calyx Institute.
Eleanor is a regular speaker at conferences including the CCC Congress, SigInt, Uncivilization, ToorCon, and Arse Elektronika. She is nomadic, living mostly in airports and occasionally in New York, London, Stockholm, and Berlin.
