Security is always a tradeoff. The more you connect apps, sites and computers to do cool things, the more openings for thieves and spammers. And real privacy is increasingly about your lifestyle and not your security settings on Facebook.
Come join fellow hacks and hackers to discuss, argue and brainstorm where we are going with privacy and security in social media and what you can do to create trust - whether you are digging for stories or writing an app or trying to convince folks to reveal all on a social site.
We are assembling a panel with experience in the legal, security, privacy and publishing aspects of the issue... and we’ll tap everyone’s stories, fears, hopes and questions in small and large group sessions. Just reveal to us whether you are coming, alone or connected.
For the hacks: Learn about why you might want to be more careful in using social media.
For the hackers: Learn about user worries and how you can make their experiences better.
