From the Organizers:
Until recently, most of our personal activities were easy to keep private, and unearthing the details required at least some effort on the part of those seeking our information. Today, however, with the advent of social media and surveillance technologies, along with the movement of many aspects of our lives into the digital realm, our data has become more widely available and more public. Between emails, web searches, phone calls, CCTV cameras, social media posts, and online transactions, we can be tracked by private companies as well as our government.
Cyrus Farivar's book Habeas Data examines ten pivotal legal cases that have helped shape privacy-rights and explores surveillance tools in use today. He'll explain how those cases and tools affect our lives in 2019.
Join Portland's Techno-Activism Third Mondays for a fascinating trip through legal and privacy history. Learn how law enforcement agencies and private companies can collect and use our private data, often without our knowledge.
