The proper relationship of technology and politics and thereby the percentage each covers in the Congress schedule have been the subject of an evergreen debate at the floor and in the corridors of the Chaos Communication Congress. Rather than taking a position in this debate, we are asking how the two have been co-articulated in talks so far by CCC participants? In order to answer this question, we are analysing the available titles and abstracts of Congress talks from 1984 until now. This ongoing research seeks to identify changing trends, significant outliers, apparent patterns and common threads throughout the years. We also wonder if it is possible to identify turning points in the narrative. The empirical data is contextualised by reflections on the shifting ground of technology, politics and society in the world during the long history of the CCC, as well as by qualitative reflections of attendants. We are inviting the audience to help us with the latter by joining in a follow-up discussion after the presentation.
