Monthly Gathering: The Privacy Revolution with Mark Weinstein
Mar 12, 2013 7:00pm - 9:00pm PST
1630 Powell Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94133
Is privacy truly dead? We’ve been brainwashed to believe that privacy is dead and that it is perfectly acceptable for the details of our lives to be discoverable online to anyone, allowing social companies to track our every move and aggregate data about us for marketers and others.
Yet the right to privacy is embedded as an inalienable right of all law-abiding citizens in democracies. How do we resolve this conflict? Is there hope for privacy? Is it alive or dead?
Join us in March when Mark Weinstein, named “Ambassador of Privacy by Design” by the government of Ontario, Canada (even though he is 100% American), leads us in a lively and interactive conversation exploring all these questions and sharing lessons he’s learned as founder and CEO of private social network Sgrouples.com.
- 7:00pm: We will start with a brief update and introduction to The Pachamama Alliance
- 7:30-9:00pm: Mark’s presentation
Come early! Our venue, Peña Pachamama – located in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco – is a South American restaurant. Delicious organic appetizers and entrees are available starting at 6:00pm (no host).
