San Francisco's Techno-Activism Third Mondays shifts 24 hours into the
(hopefully not too dystopian) future next week.
We're teaming up with colleagues in Washington DC for a special on the
Trans-Pacific Partnership with the:
>> FLUSH THE TPP HACKATHON
Join us for an evening of hacking, building, and meme-making as part of
a week of action against the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement!
The TPP, a trade agreement whose text was released just this month:
https://www.eff.org/issues/tpp . Its e-commerce and intellectual
property chapters would extend copyright terms in many countries, limit
governments' ability to require source code, place bans on circumventing
DRM, increase ISP liability, and strip away privacy for domain owners.
At this Tuesday hackathon, we'll be working on making new online tools,
resources, and graphics for people to use and spread the word about the
threats of the TPP.
IN WASHINGTON D.C:
WHEN: Tuesday, November 17 5:00pm ~ late
WHERE: First Trinity Lutheran Church, 4th and E Sts., NW and worldwide*
WHO: Activists, hackers, artists, and tinkerers. Some technical
background encouraged but not required.
IN SAN FRANCISCO, CA:
WHEN: Tuesday, November 17 3PM-7PM
WHERE: Noisebridge Hackerspace, 2629 Mission St, San Francisco
WHO: Techno-activist regulars, and anyone else with an interest in
learning more about how the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement
affects the Internet and innovation.
This will be a hands-on session, where you can participate in projects being
developed in both spaces.
Here are some sample project ideas:
* TPP Quiz: A way for people to become acquainted with the problems of
these deals and help them become better at conveying the threats to
their friends and family.
* Inspect the Text: A tool to highlight portions of the text and how
they would affect the public interest, so that people can see what
language in the actual text translates to specific regulatory concerns.
It could also reveal which industries may have lobbied for or would
benefit from this language.
* Media/Graphic Repository: A platform where all shareable images,
videos, and other media can be put in one place for ease of reference
and use. Ideally, this would also have share buttons and also have a way
to specify usage via Creative Commons licenses.
Hope to see you there!
