Part 1 of the panel discussion "Nothing to Hide? A Forum about Online Privacy," held at Brooklyn Public Library's Shelby White and Leon Levy Information Commons on November 13, 2013.
Because the Internet is a primary hub for information and communication, a free and open Web is necessary for a democratic and free society. Government surveillance, corporate data tracking, and security failures threaten an open Web. This program discussed issues of online privacy relevant to technology and library users, including: • What does loss of privacy mean to a democratic way of life? • How can the average Internet and smartphone user feel safe but free on the Web? • To what extent are we responsible for our own safety in a digital society?
By day, David Huerta writes code for the coolest museum in Brooklyn. By night, he helps organize Cryptoparties, local teach-in sessions which bring technologists and everyday people together to learn how to protect their online privacy.
