Privacy has been pronounced dead; allegedly “free” services cost us troves of personal data; our governments know more about us than we do ourselves. No one actually “Agrees” to these “Conditions”, yet short of abandoning all modern conveniences, resistance seems futile. But fear not! There are loads of projects and people working on ways to take back our digital agency.
Facilitated by Nick Briz & Jon Satrom, Data Rules Everything Around Me (D.R.E.A.M.) is a free & open monthly series devoted to discussing these topics. Featured writers, artists, developers and other cultural producers are invited to share their research and perspectives on the data that fuels the systems that run our world.
