Share A conversation with Cory Doctorow - Hackers + Activism: Aaron Swartz, Anonymous and the Ethics of Digital Community

Event Details

The recent prosecution and suicide of digital innovator and activist Aaron Swartz and the increasingly public actions of the hacker collective Anonymous have brought unprecedented attention to the role of hacktivism in our digital world. Is hacking an effective form of activism? Where do we draw the line between ethical protest and destructive radicalism online? What rights and responsibilities do we have as citizens in an increasingly corporatized digital world? Join us to discuss the future of privacy, civic unrest and collective action.

Discuss these questions and more with prolific author and activist Cory Doctorow and a panel of experts including Ed Finn, director of ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination, Dawn Gilpin, assistant professor at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and Jade Meskill, co-founder of collaborative workspace Gangplank.

 

Guests who have RSVPed will receive more information about options for paid parking closer to the event date.
