Counter-Inaugural: Douglas Goodwin on Electronic Privacy
We conduct our lives over media devices. We steep ourselves in streams of media. Every day the news brings revelations about Internet wiretapping, data mining, and abuses of power.
This presentation by Douglas Goodwin will introduce specific threats to our electronic privacy, and outline defensive and offensive actions we can take to mitigate them.
This event is part of Clockshop’s Counter-Inaugural, a series of talks addressing local and national politics through a cultural lens.
