Please join us for a lively panel discussion about online surveillance with three leading activists and researchers, moderated by our own Mike Siff (Computer Science).
Surveillance Research and Action: Approaches to Information Freedom
Tuesday, April 15, 7 – 9 pm, Pillow Room, Esther Raushenbush Library
Our online activities are regularly tracked by corporations and government agencies, yet what are the implications for our daily lives? Is there such a thing as privacy online? With corporations as gatekeepers of digital tools and information, is there such a thing as internet freedom? Panelists will share their research and years of experience in anti-surveillance activism, and discuss strategies to avoid surveillance, advance information freedom, and engage in techno-activism.
