Hacking Reality: Privacy and Social Media
The Canadian House of Commons Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics (ETHI) is currently engaged in a study on Privacy and Social Media. While the Parliament of Canada may be on summer recess, the members of the Hacking Reality program at the Academy of the Impossible continue to meet each Thursday night.
Join us on August 9th to talk about the contentious relationship between social media and privacy. What sort of balance must be struck between the desire for attention and the need for privacy. When does one outweigh the other? Are solutions to be found in either technology, policy, or culture?
When parliament resumes so too will the committee and their study into social media and privacy. Now is a good opportunity for concerned members of the Canadian public to provide submissions to the committee for further input on their study. We'll talk about how to do this and why we should (or should not).
