The annual Mozilla Festival, being held this year October 25-27 in London, brings together more than 1,000 technologists, designers, activists and others interested in making the Internet a better place.
We’re really excited to participate this year in MozFest’s privacy track, entitled “Look Who’s Watching.” There are more than a dozen sessions with demos of the latest privacy technology, discussions of the commercial and government tracking, and the place of privacy in the future of the Internet. There are plenty of other tracks with hundreds of sessions exploring games, online journalism, mobile, and pretty much anything you can think of digital.
CEO Joe Galarneau will facilitate a workshop — a organization and process hackathon of sorts — to explore how to achieve a better balance between all the stakeholders in the data game: consumers, digital operators and data collectors.
An outline of the group activity is posted here, and we’re interested in trying to make it better. So if you have any comments, please check out this Google Doc and leave your thoughts. We’ll update it throughout the week based on your feedback.
And just before MozFest, Joe will be stopping through Chicago on Wednesday to speak at The Big Data Conference about building trust in enterprise and consumer data relationships.
