Highlights today at #iff2019 - Informative session about predictive policing as racialized surveillance; discussing a tech utopia vs dystopia; and creating a sci-fi character and community in a separate, bilingual workshop. Sharpening rudimentary Spanish to boot. It was enlightening to observe in such a space, special attributes we envisioned for ourselves within a multiverse revolved around joy, empathy, equality..and reimagined communication that was both individualized and expansive.
dear diary and @judeswae , today continued the tradition of community and festivities at #iff2019 . So many incredibly intelligent, caring and committed people Learned about #outline vpn, Feminist Principles of the Internet #ietf , and citizen journalism occurring under authoritarian regimes. Seeing activists and technologists come together to identify issues and solutions on-the-spot was inspiring. Some beach time in between...meeting TW alums...just all around amazing time!
#iff2019 officially started. The sense of community here is strong, which is very different from a lot of tech confs in general. A convening of caring journalists, activists, organizers, technologists, and even met artists, learning and teaching one another. Can't wait for the glitter party!!! #valencia #techbabes #freeinternet #glitterfest coming soon, hopefully:blobcheer:
