[Eyebeam Presents] #ArtsTech: Privacy/Identity

In the age of "transparency" and big data, questions around privacy and identity loom large. While some people want to create what are essentially "driver's licenses for the web" that will link back to your personal identity wherever you go online (i.e. Google+, Facebook profiles), others warn of the costs associated with giving up our right to anonymity and what this might mean for free speech and censorship online. This is a BIG topic that affects all of us as denizens of the web, and in this meetup we'll merely be skimming the surface.

Our panel of speakers will present a variety of perspectives on these issues to help get the conversation started. Full info. here.

Schedule:

7:00pm – Doors. Mingling over wine and snacks provided by Tumblr

7:30-8:45pm – Presentations and short panel discussion with the speakers

8:30-10:00pm – Conversation continues over wine
