VOL 60

February 26, 2015
@ Seattle Central Library

What does privacy mean in the digital age? To what extent do we understand the information ecosystems that surround us? To what extent is our world visible? What can we see and what do others see? What is the value of our information – individually and collectively? What is the price of convenience if privacy must be compromised to attain it? What does privacy mean in the age of smart phones, social media and cloud computing? Pecha Kucha Seattle, in collaboration with the Seattle Public Library present PKN SEA vol. 58: Watch Me Now, Notes on a Surveillance Society. The event will bring together speakers from across the information ecosystem – including policy makers, technologists, advocates and others to discuss the complex issues surrounding privacy and surveillance in the digital world.
