DDOS of the NATO website.
A project about websites that blackmail people with criminal records by publishing their mugshots. Paolo used an obfuscation strategy, publishing copycat websites randomising the names and showing blurred pictures. Got cease and desist notice from some of them.
Looking for a front end coder who can help with right2remove.us. A service that
will help poor people who can’t afford it to automatically send a legal letter to Google to ask for removal of their personal information.
After getting the whole list of companies incorporated in the Cayman islands, Paolo generated Certificates of Incorporations in the name of existing firms, to “democratize tax avoidance”. Anyone can pretend to own the companies since they are anonymous.

Glitching 3D models (reference: http://www.srcxor.org/blog/3d-glitching/)
Pascal wanted to automate the process. Writing a library that takes any kind of .obj file and messes with it in many different ways (textures, vertices, etc). The end goal is to have a fully automated 3D glitching system that sends him a choice of PNG images by mail and publishes the ones he likes on his website.
