Heroes - A Brief History of Whistleblowing. This lecture will entertain and tell you about whistleblowing people and events we should not forget. The truth needs heroes to be a driver of change. Regarding media coverage, we seem to know everything about whistleblowing. But in fact we don't, the more we leave the well-known paths, we explore a wolrd of thousands of whistleblowers, must of them unknown.


Whistleblowing is an ethical important activity. Together we will make a speedy tour through the last decades, explore known or forgotten events, uncover myths, look into the past and the future of net driven transparency. What we need is rememberance being persistent, to avoid that our heroes getting "heroes just for one day", lost in our daily media and information overload buzz. What can we do to achieve this.? This talk is an attempt and starting point to create a place of commemoration, to help and motivate current &  future whistleblowers. 

I, I can remember

Standing, by the wall

And the guns shot above our heads

And we kissed, as though nothing could fall

And the shame was on the other side

Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever

Then we could be Heroes, just for one day
