Techno-activism 3rd Mondays


TA3M are monthly meetups that happen simultaneously in cities throughout the world. It brings together a diversity of people interested in surveillance, censorship and open technology.


Format: Short talks followed by discussion, drinks and networking

Talks:

Phil Booth, Coordinator, medConfidential - ACT NOW to protect your medical confidentiality

Threats to your medical confidentiality: care.data

Significant changes to how your medical data is handled are happening now. Medical data that was previously under the control of your GP is going to be uploaded to a central database at the Health and Social Care Information Centre, from where it will be shared with companies and  organisations inside and outside the NHS for a range of purposes none of which are to with your direct medical care.


Double Blink, Theatre Company – Jolie Booth, Clara Gutteridge and Frances Hill

Double Blink are a local theatre company who are are developing an immersive piece of theatre for the Digital Festival in September, to creatively support a rich, nuanced discourse around the internet.

We aim to celebrate the internet’s creative and political potential whilst encouraging audience members to engage critically with issues surrounding the internet as a culturally transformative and politically contested space. In particular, the battle currently being fought out amongst governments, corporations and individuals as to how the internet is governed, exploring issues around privacy and the use of personal data and how this affects us all.

The performance will be interactive, giving audiences an opportunity to explore these complex issues and create a safe platform to voice their opinions within a fictitious environment. 

We will be soon holding a series of Hackathon events as part of our R&D work for the show and are looking to make connections with organisations and individuals who might be interested in getting involved.

    Another question about health data - do we know the extent of mis-coding? If the data is sold this could be an issue.

    The presentation on heath data was impressive and quite scary.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
