It's a given that the tech companies collective massive amounts of information on each of us, but there are also many ways that we can gather information about these companies to hold them accountable. As part of The Glass Room, an art installation in downtown San Francisco, EFF Senior Investigative Researcher Dave Maass will take you through a tour of some of the best resources for understanding the online ecosystems, including transparency reports, advertising disclosures, procurement records, and lobbying data.
What: Investigative Resources for the Digital Age
Who: Senior Investigative Researcher Dave Maass
Where: Second floor events space, 838 Market Street San Francisco, CA 94102 USA
When: 4 pm, October 26, 2019
The Glass Room is a 28,000 square-foot pop-up store with a twist, presenting more than 50 provocative tech products in an unexpected environment. This installment arrives in San Francisco to turn a mirror on Silicon Valley, to the people who make our technologies and those who are affected by its impact on society. The Glass Room is a great way for users of technology to engage on a deeper level and make more informed choices. Each piece in The Glass Room tells a different story about data and technology, so there is something for everyone to connect with.”
In addition to the exhibits, the Glass Room will host programming and talks to foster debate, discussion, and solution-finding on the relevant and hot topic issues facing the industry and consumers today.
