Event Details

Please join us for an evening of community and learning at The Glass Room this Friday, December 2nd from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This event will bring together individuals and organizations exploring digital privacy and security. Individuals, researchers, and other members of the digital security community will come together with public interest organizations and members of Hive NYC to discuss privacy / security and it’s impact on NYC.

A collection of lighting talks will ground the evening in ideas and actions. Lighting talks will offer insight into what individuals and organizations can do, need to consider, and how they can support one another as we delve into this ever-evolving privacy / security landscape.

More about The Glass Room:

The Glass Room is designed to look like a typical “lifestyle” store (Think: Apple Store) offering the latest and greatest technology products.  But instead, the ‘products’ are artworks, investigations and activist projects designed to provoke public and internal debate about personal data, privacy and security, like the “UnFitBit” for fabricating exercise data, the “Newstweek” for altering the headlines and copy readers see on news sites they access over open WiFi, and the Socio-Metric work badge, an activity tracker that monitors workplace activity, such as how often an employee sits, stands or raises their hand in meetings which is actually on the market. Each day, all day, we will be hosting a Data Detox Bar where “InGenious” volunteers (recruited through the Hive Network and TTC’s community) teach “shoppers” how to take control of their data online, understand their metadata and protect their privacy. And we’ll be hosting special events with people like artist, Ingrid Burrington and organizations like NYU and Witness in the evenings.
