> What is the connection between the surveillance state and junk food? This project uses Edward Snowden’s statement that he missed eating Dorito’s while in exile in Russia as a jumping off point to examine fast data and fast food in our global late capitalist society. Social media and junk food activate our brains in similar ways, momentary pleasure and novelty, but with long term consequences for our individuals and collective well being.  
> In this workshop we will prototype a range of open source Dorito’s recipes, place them on the deep web, and expose ourselves to non-corporate information tools and foods. 
> 
> - Open Source recipe for Doritos
> - When asked what he missed about America, or if there was anything he couldn’t get in Russia, Snowden responded Doritos
> 
> - Put the recipe up as a fork
> - Put recipe / content on the deep web
> 
> THINGS TO LEARN
> - Access the deep web
> - Bag of chips / Video
> 
> ACTIVITIES
> - Flavor as an encryption tool
> - Webcam Microscope
> - Tumblr
> - #Doritos4Snowden
> - Taste Test / Bag over your head. (Tasting in Isolation vs. Tasting everywhere)
> 
> Hacker Culture = Fast, junk food
> Slow data, slow food.
