Making Choices in your Digital Life

Whatsapp, Gmail, Google Search – we use these apps and tools because everyone else does, and because... what else is there? This workshop will enable you to think more critically about the tools you use, what questions you should ask, and why the answers matter. You will also be introduced to some alternative chat apps, email providers, and search tools that allow you more control of your own data.

October 25, 4:30pm

Investigating Metadata

We generate metadata all the time – when we send emails, post online, take a picture or even just walk around with our mobile phones in our pockets. This session will explore metadata: what it is, why it is important and how our everyday lives can be predicted by analysing it.

Tactical Tech is a Berlin-based non-profit organisation working at the intersection of technology, human rights and civil liberties. We provide trainings, conduct research and create cultural interventions that contribute to the wider socio-political debate around digital security, privacy and the ethics of data.

He has also worked as a freelance journalist, being one of the first reporters to cover China's internet repression in 2002 as well as the first World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in 2003.Over the past 15 years Alistair has also been actively involved with as many activist groups and campaigns as will have him. He helped organise the Iraq anti-war march in London in 2003 of over 1 million people. He has worked with Climate Camp, the Campaign for John Charles de Menezes, UkUncut and the Open Rights Group.
