    Why Privacy Matters

    Online event

    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. This presentation will focus specifically on why privacy matters, and not on what we should do about it.

    Bring your questions and join the discussion. We hope to see you there!

    Speaker bio:

    AJ Rice is a privacy advocate, and the founder & CEO of Privo Mobile. Privo Mobile is a Portland-based tech startup making (private) dumb phones designed for kids with a modern user experience and interface.

  • Community Manager Meetup: The basics of Vendors & Community

    Online event

    Talk about Community Management. Do you run a Meetup group, Facebook group, Online group, support community, or other type of community-based group? We are a collection of professionals sharing information related to the art of Community Management. Join Us!

    There are a lot of fund raising strategies for your community group. As your community grows you may need to raise funds and you might look at utilizing the vendors in your community as funding sources.

    In this presentation and discussion, we will talk about:

    • The breadth of fundraising strategies by communities, and typical revenue models
    • Considerations of legally incorporating as a 501c3 vs other options
    • Identifying vendors in your community and evaluating their financial potential
    • Tips doing outreach to vendors when asking for money
    • Understanding what vendors want in exchange for money, and possible ways to balance the interests of everyone
    • Objections your vendors might have and ways to negotiate

    Bring your experience working with vendors and sponsors. Where have you found success, what horror stories do you have, and think about how we can help other communities do this better.

    Portland Facial Recognition Ordinance Drafts

    Online event

    Last month, we had a great panel discussion about the use of facial recognition technologies, where we looked at the accuracy of the technology as well as how it affects various groups of people and their civil rights. Due to a number of issues surrounding the technology, several cities have banned government agencies from using facial recognition, and there's currently a similar effort at the federal level.

    In August, the City of Portland will consider two bills that ban the use of facial recognition technologies within the City. One bill addresses use by public agencies, and the other addresses private use.

    Hector Dominguez, the Open Data Coordinator at Smart City PDX, within Portland's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, is one of the chief authors of the proposed bills and will join us this month to discuss what each piece of legislation covers and how the bans, if approved, will work. He'll also talk about the internal efforts to develop a privacy toolkit that includes privacy impact and risk assessments, guidelines, and a Privacy Champions Network.

    Links to drafts of the legislation and the City Code amendment are available on the meeting registration page at: https://www.meetup.com/Portlands-Techno-Activism-3rd-Mondays/events/271802710/

    Bring your questions and join the discussion. We hope to see you there!

    Speaker bio:

    Hector Dominguez is the Open Data Coordinator at the City of Portland. In 2009, Portland became the first city in the United States to adopt an Open Data Resolution to encourage the expansion of the technological community by promoting open data and partnerships between City government and the public, private and nonprofit sectors, academia, and labor.
