Event Description

This month's topic is: Leading in Technological Activism

Techno-Activism Third Mondays (TA3M) is an informal meetup designed to connect software creators and activists who are interested in censorship, surveillance, and open technology. Currently, TA3M are held in 16 cities throughout the world, with many more launching in the near the future.

One year into the TA3M movement, we will be discussing the successes and failures from around the world.

Note: TA3Ms traditionally take place on the 3rd Monday of every month, but conflicts with OSCON events necessitate meeting later in the week.

This session will be lead by Jen Davidson, a Human-Computer Interaction researcher @Intel, and Sean McGregor, founder of The Privly Foundation and Machine Learning PhD student from Oregon State University.
