"Plug'n'Politix" [1] is a network of groups dedicated to merging
politics and technology through squatting and free software. It brings
together those involved in open-access spaces, anarchist computing
collectives and hacklabs, through the 'connect at squat.net' mailing-list
[2] and occasional congresses.

In October 2001, a number of such groups and individuals gathered in the
Egocity squat [3] in Zürich, Switzerland, for 3 days of discussions,
debates and workshops. This was the first "Connect Congress". 

The second "Connect Congress" will be held in Barcelona, on December
3rd, 4th, 5th 2004. It is being hosted by the Cyberforat squatted
cybercafé/hacklab [4], and collectively organized through the connect
mailing-list and wiki [5]. 

It is meant to be complementary to hackmeetings and other public
activist tech events, by being private and work-focused. Because of
this, and because of the limited number of resources, we need people
willing to participate to register beforehand, by filling up the
following form, and send it back to connect at squat.net. In addition to
this, individuals should add themselves to the "summary of people
present" on the wiki page [6].
