    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.

    What is it?

    This is the Techno-Activism 3rd Monday event for Portland, Oregon! Read more about techno-activism 3rd mondays.

    Who should come?

    Anyone interested in techno-activism. We invite coders, geeks, artists, and anyone else. No technical experience required.

    Who's hosting?

    This month's TA3M is hosted at the Oregon Convention Center by O'Reilly's Open Source Convention.

    The Privly Foundation will organize this and future TA3M Portland events.

    OSCON 2014
    through
    Oregon Convention Center

    Once considered a radical upstart, open source has moved from disruption to default. Its methods and culture commoditized the technologies that drove the Internet revolution and transformed the practice of software development. Collaborative and transparent, open source has become modus operandi, powering the next wave of innovation in cloud, data, and mobile technologies.

    OSCON is where all of the pieces come together: developers, innovators, businesspeople, and investors. In the early days, this trailblazing O'Reilly event was focused on changing mainstream business thinking and practices; today OSCON is about real-world practices and how to successfully implement open source in your workflow or projects. While the open source community has always been viewed as building the future—that future is here, and it's everywhere you look. Now in its 16th year, OSCON is the best place on the planet to experience the open source ecosystem. At OSCON, you'll find everything open source: languages, communities, best practices, products and services. Rather than focus on a single language or aspect, such as cloud computing, OSCON allows you to learn about and practice the entire range of open source technologies.

    In keeping with its O'Reilly heritage, OSCON is a unique gathering where participants find inspiration, confront new challenges, share their expertise, renew bonds to community, make significant connections, and find ways to give back to the open source movement. The event has also become one of the most important venues to announce groundbreaking open source projects and products.

    Innovation in Motion Panel @ Innotech

    “Where should innovation start?”

    The majority of business leaders do not recognize the value of IT in innovation.... Meanwhile, some companies make use of technology trends, including big data, social, and mobile. How does data, development, and design influence the maturity of tech innovation? How does one area influence the other two and where do great ideas begin?

    Join us as we walk through a number of innovative case studies of innovation. Some started with data, moved to development and were later marketed to the masses. Others started with development and marketing, leaving design as an afterthought. The products are interesting, and the individual approaches are fascinating.

    Innovation in Motion members will be allowed to attend this panel at the InnoTech Conference for FREE. RSVP on this Meet-up page and your name will be add to the guest list for this panel at the InnoTech Conference.
