ShotSpotter / acoustic surveillance community teach-in and workshop!
Online

As you've likely seen in local media lately, gun violence in Portland has been on the rise. In response, the City of Portland commissioned a task force to study the issue and recommend actions that city commissioners can take to address the issue and solve the problem (reduce gun violence). After several months of meetings, the Focused Intervention Team / Community Oversight Group (FIT/COG) submitted a recommendation to Mayor Ted Wheeler in favor of adopting ShotSpotter gunshot detection technology.

What is ShotSpotter, and how does it work? Are its results accurate and is the technology effective? Has it been successful in other cities that have implemented it? What are the trade-offs, and would the benefits outweigh the costs — in terms of both financial and negative impacts to the community?

Join us for a two-part event to learn more about ShotSpotter and other gunshot detection systems and forms of acoustic surveillance! Decide for yourself whether this tool might be effective in solving Portland's gun violence problem.

During the event's first half, learn from our panelists how ShotSpotter and other gunshot detection technologies work and how they've performed in other cities.

The second half of the meeting will be a workshop, where you can learn more about what happens with the FIT/COG recommendation. Ways you can provide input into whether ShotSpotter should be installed in Portland.

Bring your questions, and come learn how you can make your voice heard on this issue!

Please RSVP via this Meetup page or by sending an email to [email protected]rg.

Why Privacy Matters
Online

Digital and physical surveillance are at all-time highs, and privacy is dissipating from our society. But why should we care about privacy if we have nothing to hide?

In this session, AJ Rice will discuss how a lack of privacy affects us as individuals and as a society. Using specific examples, Rice will cover the direct consequences of a world without privacy and also the more subtle ways an absence of privacy undermines the rights of those who have nothing to hide.

After the presentation and Q&A, the session will conclude with a guided hands-on exercise in threat-modeling geared at helping attendees better understand the individual risks posed to them by different types of surveillance.

This is part-2 of a special 3-part privacy workshop in June. If you miss part 1, you’re still more than welcome to attend this session:

What the Internet Knows about Us
Online

There’s a myth our personal data is all anonymous and that the different bits of information we give to different companies remain in separate silos; that a bunch of companies know a little about us, but no one has a complete view. In reality, our data is so granular it can easily be used to identify us, and so widely shared it can easily all be linked together.

In this session, AJ Rice will provide a broad overview of what the internet knows about us, how companies and governments track us, and why they track us. The session will cover what data specific companies and industries collect about us, how they obtain the data with or without our knowledge, and what happens to that data after they collect it.

After the presentation and Q&A, the session will conclude with a guided hands-on exercise geared at helping attendees better understand what data is being collected about them personally.

Peer coaching also helps build emotional intelligence, which is indispensable when stepping into leadership positions.

TiE Oregon Functional Workshop - Company Valuation
Zoom

please join us each month for timely discussions, workshops, and networking opportunities. This month Naomi Derner CFA, Managing Director of Vantage Point Advisors will talk to us about company valuation.

Entrepreneurs seeking their first round of funding may be asked about their company’s valuation by potential investors. Most new founders have no experience or training in valuation, and may pick a number without any support or rationale, or accept a valuation suggested by an investor without understanding what it means.

In this workshop, we will help you prepare for these conversations.

-- Demystify the language and math used by investors around valuation. -- Techniques for estimating the value of your company….even if you are pre-revenue. -- Why your valuation matters, and why sometimes it doesn’t.
