BalCCon 2013 in the news
Serbia and Novi Sad are beginning to be considered by Europe to be like a 'Silicon Valley' for the Balkans, and so seeing BalCCon on the front page of the Sunday newspaper was a crowning achievement for BalCCon's organizers.
Inside the paper was an in-depth article about hacker culture, perceptions of hackers, concerns about an Internet surveillance state, and the problems posed by the actions of actors such as the USA's NSA.
You can read the article and its interviews here (in Serbian; Google Translate does it justice).
