Investors love it. Consumers hate it. Surveillance capitalism is everywhere, but is it all we can do?
Join us in this mixer focused on Ethics, Privacy and Personal Data, for intense debate, drinks, and networking with fellow travelers intrigued by the possibilities and pitfalls of personal data. In this first event, we will keep it informal. In future events, we’ll bring in speakers on specific subjects. And yes, it’s every month on the full moon, because — why not? Let’s think outside the box.


6:00pm Doors open and networking

6:30pm Welcome — Seth Goldstein, Co-founder, Node (and host); CEO & co-founder, Fiducia

6:35pm Introduction and Welcome to MyData Global — Sari Stenfors, PhD, Executive Director, Augmented Leadership Institute

6:50pm Lightening talks (5 min each):
+ Heard of the GDPR? It matters in Silicon Valley, too
Søren Juul Jørgensen, research fellow at WSD Handa Center for Human Rights and International Justice at Stanford University

+ Healthcare data rights and interoperability in the 21st century
Ben Creasy, software developer, engaged citizen

+ In the age of the Raspberry Pi, we can bring our data home
Johannes Ernst, CEO & founder, Indie Computing

+ Engaging enterprises, governments and non-profits
Mark Son-Bell, technology strategist

+ How to join MyData Silicon Valley and why you really want to — Josep Aliagas, entrepreneur and investor

+ Introduce yourself — everybody gets to speak up, briefly
and more networking until 8:00pm.

As this is our first event, we touch on a lot of subjects briefly. In future events, we'll cover just one subject at a time, more deeply, based on what people are most interested in.
