Radically Open Security

Elizabeth Jane Cole

Elizabeth Jane Cole cofounded Evil Twin Booking Agency, which organizes idea-oriented events with a focus on skill building and knowledge expansion.

Recently, she traveled across China and met with Ai Wei Wei , hackers, Tsinghua University professors, and open source entrepreneurs, with the goal of learning how to create communities where people have support doing what they really love.

Combining her passion for science and the origins of life in the universe with her love of dumpster diving, she builds open source PCR machines and mobile biology labs from recycled and scavenged materials.

For fun, she produces radio pieces for Love + Radio. She is a member of Genspace, New York City’s community bio lab. Her writing about DIY film, tech, and debauchery in the man-machine continuum has been published in WIRED magazine, Filmmaker and other outlets.
