Comment[edit]

Maybe it's just me, but I don't find the article very objective. Maybe someone who knows more about it can try to adjust it a little bit or simply erase some of the glorifying adjectives.

It would be nice if you added your Nick and I don't see any glorifying adjectives. ;)
From my POV it is still a stub, there is lots to add. -- Lightkey 09:01, 3 May 2005 (UTC)
There is more information in the german article at http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_Computer_Club. Feel free to use google to translate it and then correct it yourself :P


The CCC was founded in Soviet-controlled East Berlin on September 12, 1981 by Wau Holland and others in anticipation of the prominent role that information technology would play in the way people live and communicate.

That's wrong, CCC was not founded in East Berlin but West Berlin, in the rooms of "die tageszeitung"

Discordianism - for real?[edit]

I'm an active member of the CCC and this bit about discordianism... I'd say, that it's not very important. I've always regarded it a little joke, cultural reference just like "23" or "foo bar". This article makes it sound like we're worshippers or something... -- Pallas —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.63.123.0 (talk) 21:30, August 25, 2007 (UTC)

GAL[edit]

If someone called the GAL the communist worker's party in Hamburg you should really doubt their paper at all. The GAL was and is the Green party organisation in Hamburg. Third biggest party in the Hamburg city and state parliament and currently ruling party, with the conservative CDU. So I will delete that part, well the entire paragraph, seems pointless to cite such a study. -- Thomas (talk) 02:40, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

struggle[edit]

replaced "to struggle for" with the less ambigous "to stand up for" as I see it inappropriate to promote a term that is easily associated with near-vain effort. Not using "to fight" (although that's of course a common term and some civil rights organizations use it of themselves) as it might be too easily associated with violence (which is not used or endorsed by the CCC) by those superficially familiar with the term "hacker". 217.226.61.243 (talk) 14:09, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Julian Assange?[edit]

There certainly are lots of rumors that Julian Assange is/was associated with the CCC[1]. See for instance these incredibly unreliable sources[2][3]. The CCC features prominently in the leaked log of Domscheit-Berg's falling out with Assange, I think generally regarded as accurate[4]. And of course the Wau Holland Foundation was listed as where to send donations to WikiLeaks. It seems probable that Assange was in the org, and if anyone can come up with a reputable source, he seems famous enough to add to the members section of the page.

[edit]

Please replace the ugly low-res logo with an appropriate version: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Logo_CCC.svg - I'm missing upload permissions. There won't be any legal issues with this logo. --MeSuAx (talk) 22:14, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Done. Lichtspiel (talk) 12:16, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

Clubs outside of German-speaking countries[edit]

I propose moving heading Chaos Computer Club France to a subheading under 'Clubs outside of German-speaking countries' or similar. There is/was a meeting in Bristol, UK which could then be included. --trevj (talk) 09:56, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

There are several "Chaosnahe Gruppen" (groups that are related to the CCC"... what to do with those? Esel (talk) 12:00, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Germans Condemn Police Use of Spyware by Nicholas Kulish, published October 14, 2011 in The New York Times. 97.87.29.188 (talk) 19:29, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Here is an interesting excerpt ...

The software exceeded the powers prescribed to the police by Germany’s Federal Constitutional Court. The public condemnation was swift and strong, renewing a national debate into how far the government can intrude into digital privacy. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, a major newspaper, called the revelation a “worst-case scenario for data security.” Germany’s justice minister, Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, demanded an inquiry into the matter, saying that citizens “must be protected from snooping with strict state control mechanisms.”

This might be more toward wp ...

the software discovered by the hacker group, dubbed “State Trojan” or “R2D2,” after a line of code including the Star Wars robot’s name, can do more than eavesdrop on phone calls. It was the ability to remotely control computers that led to charges from leading politicians that the state had crossed into Orwellian territory.
