Event description

Description

Dear IxDAb'ties,

Cortana. Alexa. Siri. OK Google. Perhaps we had forgotten these names over our summer break. Getting back into the swing of things at work, we may be reflecting our life choices and reconsider taking up the offer of moving to an off-the-grid farm from that traveller we met. Hmm. He didn’t have a smartphone to talk to, and he still seemed OK. Strange…

We had so much time to think about our jobs, away from the keyboard. We want more of that, heck we want to make products that matter, we are reconsidering our career in tech. But as we come back to work, that all fades. We get into the treadmill and we think about the next task at work. The ethics of our work falls to the bottom of our Prio list.

Take a couple of hours out of that busy schedule. Let’s take a critical look at the swing of things, bringing in Aral Balkan, a cyborg rights activist, designer, and developer ("The Ethical Design Manifesto"), to discuss social justice in the digital age:

Wednesday, September 27, 7 pm
Doors open 6:30 - 150 people max - first come first serve
Zalando "The Hub", Tamara-Danz-Str. 1, 10243 Berlin

If you aren’t able to make it at 7pm, please join us as usual, for some post event drinks and mingling at Café Wendel, Schlesische Str. 42, 10997 Berlin, just across the Spree – here's a map.

Let’s continue the year with a spark,
Kathryn, Thomas, Audrey and Jay
