Portland's Techno-Activism 3rd Monday: OSCON BoF
Oregon Convention Center

Note: This TA3M is on Tuesday to coincide with the OSCON Birds of a Feather sessions. You can register for a free (save $20) Expo pass by entering the code "FOSSFTW" here.

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.

Portland's Techno-Activism 3rd Monday: FOIA Party

There is a Form for That: Learn what the Government Thinks it Knows About You

Ever wonder what travel information the Department of Homeland Security maintains on you? There is a form for that. Want to know if you have an FBI file? There is a form for that. Want to know if law enforcement is setting up cell phone tracking towers in your area? There is a form for that.

In this interactive session of TA3M we supply attendees with an easy way to send requests to state and federal agencies for personal and public information.

For an example of the power of these requests, see these Ars Technica articles: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/05/ask-ars-can-i-see-what-the-feds-know-about-where-ive-traveled/

Come fill forms and then speculate on what you will find out!

We'll be bringing in a representative from MuckRock.com to help facilitate the public records requests and providing all the necessary pieces for requesting your own personal data.
