Hanging on the walls of the San Francisco Mint are six special paintings - collaborative works by famed cryptographer and puzzle master, Ryan Clarke (LoSTBoy), and international lowbrow contemporary artist, Mar Williams. These paintings hold pieces of a puzzle with multiple answers, each more devious and difficult than the last. We invite you to spend some time in front of these artworks, scattered throughout the building, and tease out the various answers to each puzzle. Winner’s are announced.

Keynote: Cory Doctorow—"Big Tech's problem is Big, not Tech"
In this keynote address, author and advocate, Cory Doctorow, argues that Big Tech is a problem, but the problem isn't "Tech," it's "BIG." Giants get to bend policy to suit their ends, they get to strangle potential competitors in their infancy, they are the only game in town, so they can put the squeeze on users and suppliers alike.
