Privacy Salon Special: Quinn Norton – Nothing Ever Ends (18/05)

quinn

At the Privacy Salon we are usually looking at how to protect and secure our data on networked devices. But we don’t always examine how we actually  got the Internet we have now nor what it’ll be like soon.

So we are pleased to present this Privacy Salon Special where Quinn Norton will be telling us how Nothing Ever Ends

Bio/description-y stuff: Quinn Norton, internet journalist and essayist, previously of Wired and The Message. I read too much history, use too much technology, obsess too much about security, know too much nerdy stuff, and am way too interested in the Mongolians.

Nothing Ever Ends is a fast romp though the history of computer and internet culture, from over two thousand years ago to several years in the future. I’ll tell the stories of some of key players in the history of the net, including the 19th century robber barons in America, Han dynasty feng shui practitioners, God, the RIAA, 90s software pirates, a little-know greek goddess, the Seattle Police Department. Over enough time, all the consequences become unintended. But all those unintended consequences give us the internet we have now, and the future we will have.

All will be revealed on May 18th, 19:00

Next Digital Privacy Salon 26/03/16

Luxembourg Digital Privacy Salon is free, intended for everyone, no prior technical expertise is assumed.

Digital Privacy Salons are skill & knowledge sharing sessions which aim to teach people the basic ways of protecting themselves and their data from intrusive surveillance.

Generally the salons deal with how to have private conversations over instant messaging, how to encrypt emails, how to browse anonymously amongst other things.

It is very important that you leave the Privacy Salon with tools & knowledge you can use on a daily basis, and explain to your friends how to do it too. All the attendees should come with device(s) they want to install tools on.

– We’ll discuss why cryptography, anonymity and anti-tracking tools are important today
– We’ll install online anonymity tools
– We’ll secure our communications
– We’ll make sure we can’t be easily tracked online
– We’ll have a drink and a chat

Oh yes, and free pizza 😉

No prior technical expertise or knowledge is assumed, so ask away about anything
