Who should come?
Anyone interested in techno-activism. We invite coders, geeks, artists, and anyone else. No technical experience required.
Steve Mancini will be speaking with us about "The impact of disruptive innovation and privacy on your average hair stylist". A bit about him: After spending way too many years and dollars pursuing college degrees, Steve Mancini eventually had to enter the real world. A trek from the East coast to the West coast landed him a job in large corporation out in the burbs and after a decade+ of working there he has learned a thing or two about computer security, hacking, forensics, and incident response. He’s worn many hats and titles; his current is Harbinger of Doom (no really, it is on his business card).
Demo time! After the talk/Q&A, we will reserve time for folks to demo their favorite security/privacy tech tool. If you would like to be be a demoer, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will work you into the schedule.
If you're interested in this event, you might also be interested in the PDXTech4Good meetup.
