Tim Schwartz (b. 1981 Boston, Massachusetts) is a Los Angeles-based artist, technologist, and activist who makes works of art focused on technology, information, privacy, and how our culture absorbs changes in these areas. Schwartz also co-organizes LA Cryptoparty with Taze and Noname, hosting privacy and security training workshops and classes since 2011. These focus on how to be anonymous, particularly in the whistleblower context. “Resistant Systems: Welcome” is the launch of a new organization, Resistant Systems, that provides the tools, books, and products needed to become anonymous. This unveiling will include the Digital Resistance Kit and the Manual of Digital Resistance.
