Speaking at the CCC in Hamburg – How have the media reported the Snowden revelations? Does the public care about surveillance, and how do people react? Do we need a ‘data justice‘ movement?
Description: “The Library Freedom Project is a partnership among librarians, technologists, attorneys, and privacy advocates which aims to make real the promise of intellectual freedom in libraries. By teaching librarians about surveillance threats, privacy rights and responsibilities, and digital tools to stop surveillance, we hope to create a privacy-centric paradigm shift in libraries and the local communities they serve.”
