Plug'n'Politix is a network of groups dedicated to merging politics and technology through squatting and free software. It brings together those involved in open-access spaces, anarchist computing collectives and hacklabs, through the mailing-list and occasional congresses.

On 5-7 October 2001, a number of such groups and individuals gathered in the Egocity squat in Zürich, for 3 days of discussions, debates and workshops. This was the first Connect Congress.

The second "Connect Congress" was held in Barcelona, on 3-5 December 2004. It was hosted by the Cyber*forat squatted cybercafé/hacklab, and collectively organized through the connect mailing-list and wiki.
