So you think you have nothing to hide?

Talks on digital & online privacy awareness

Arguably, with the rise of many issues concerning privacy and mass

surveillance, the roles of technology and the ones who make use of it

have (d)evolved. The responsibility and biggest challenge of an

individual who uses current technologies, no matter what the outcome or

the main idea behind a project, is to be aware of the consequences of

using these tools. Taking this responsibility after all, is quite the

feat and impossible without incorporating critical thinking both

practically and ideally.

The right to preserve our private domains have been under heavy attack

for many years, lately with an ever-increasing exposure to ubiquitous

interconnected consumer products, devices, services and their data

collection. Through our obsession with online presences we are feeding

the data ourselves, trusting profit-seeking companies with our most

valuable asset: our private lives.

Awareness of what is technologically possible to avoid this intrusion is

the essential aim of the talk. Through introduction to various tools and

discussions on products and services we are using everyday, the talk

offers insight into the world of online activism, fight for digital

rights and digital privacy movements.
