Berlin is a mad city. Germany’s capital is pockmarked with tattoos, scars, and statues to its paradoxical past. A city notorious for its history, where invasive surveillance and the urge for freedom clasped hands during a shift change at the border control between East and West. Today the world pulls up a chair to relish the scenes of its daunting past. Berlin is both memorial and haven.
Berlin is also a feeling, and a unique one for those whose roots lie here. Cathleen Berger, Lead, Engagement with Global Internet Fora at Mozilla, is one of them. The world is her well-traveled home, but Berlin has never lost its gravity for her. “If you grow up in a divided city, it doesn’t take much to realize how important privacy is. If you know what permanent surveillance does to people and how it changes their behavior.”

The United Nations General Assembly just held its 72nd session in New York City. Leaders from all over the world were in town, including representatives from the 193 UN governments, as well as businesses and civil society. Apart from the main UNGA, there were plenty of other high-level gatherings organised in the margins — several of these focusing on the future of online life and digital technologies.
