Nobody knows with precision who's hidden behind the name 0100101110101101.ORG. Anything has been said about this renegade cyber-entity, accused of being "simple thief", dubbed as "media dandy" and "cultural terrorists". They are the authors of some of the most perfect media exploits of the last years, such as the spoof of the Vatican website - almost identical with that of the Holy See, but with slight deviations - or the memorable theft of the art gallery Their most enigmatic work, to which they attend since years, is called GLASNOST - transparency - a permanent self-surveillance system that consists on the monitoring and diffusion of an enormous amount of data related to their private life. With the project life_sharing they started giving every Internet user free and unlimited access to their personal computer: programs, system, desktop, archives, tools and even private mail are all public. Since the beginning of the project VOPOS they wear a GPS transmitter that, exchanging data with the satellites, constantly transmits to their website, their exact position on the urban environment. GLASNOST explores the contradictions of privacy in the era of information technology, mirroring the obsession of society in collecting and archiving personal data.
