Privacy & Social Networks: All Is Not lost! (But We Need Your Help)
Monday, January 20, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
December agenda for Techno-Activism 3rd Mondays.

in different cities throughout the world.
Privacy and Social Networks seem to clash and the companies offering the services are frequently (portrayed as being) more interested in profiling their users in order to make advertising bucks rather than protect them. But things aren't always black and white.

Bio: Jan Schaumann (@jschauma) spends a lot of time worrying about infrastructure integrity and security, about online privacy, and scalable system architecture, administration and operations. Fortunately for him, Twitter
pays him to do just that (or at least he likes to think so).
