Hi all,

How are you? Preparing your gift-list for the holiday season? Then you might want to check the “smart gadgets creepiness” rating of Mozilla😊
We’re preparing for a special meetup about sensing sound. Goal is not only to share knowledge, but also to define a new project we can collaborate on and learn from while helping in addressing a societal challenge!
Please note the location is changed to “Pension Homeland” on the Marineterrein and change your rsvp if you can’t make it, we’ve got a waiting list.

Furthermore we’ve asked our friends from The Things Network to collaborate on a deep dive into LoRaWan, we’ll host a session together with them on January 16th. They also gave us a ticket for The Things Conference to raffle off during the End of Years drink!
And they were not the only ones, Thingscon supplied 2 tickets for their conference to raffle off as well. Both are also giving us a nice discount!

So checkout these events:

  • Nov.23-24th. New Democray
    A co-design thinking session on developing how to renew our democracy, they are still looking for makers to participate. Register here (Dutch speaking)

    Thingscon is a great conference for inspiration, knowledge and networking. “Now, 5 years into ThingsCon, the need for responsible technology has entered the mainstream debate. It’s time to offer better approaches to the challenges of the 21st century: Don’t complain, suggest what’s better! In this spirit, going forward we will focus on exploring how connected devices can be made better, more responsible and more respectful of fundamental human rights”

    A great conference to get deep (technical) insights on how to get IoT working. “At The Things Conference, we come together to share knowledge about the hard bits; the long development cycles in IoT and the common mistakes that eat up all your time, money and resources. We provide you with the content and knowledge to mitigate risks during your LoRaWAN development”

Let’s get responsible
The awareness about the need to implement privacy & security in the design phase is growing, just as the need for a certification mark. If you want to know more about security or other principles for responsible IoT, the Wiki of the open IoTMark provides a great overview of relevant links:
