Nearly every day we’re told that our privacy is under attack. Are we entering a new and treacherous phase in our relationship with privacy, or should we welcome, as some have recommended, a new “era of transparency?” Join ACLU attorney (and Edward Snowden’s lawyer) Ben Wizner, philosopher Michael P. Lynch, the Nation’s Sarah Leonard, the Guardian Project’s Harlo Holmes, and artist Ingrid Burrington for a discussion of such questions in connection with The Point’s Issue 9 symposium, What is Privacy for? Moderated by Jonny Thakkar of The Point. Discussion and drinks to follow the panel.
Wednesday, February 4, 7:30 pm
n+1 headquarters, 68 Jay Street #405, Brooklyn, NY 11201
Update from The Point: As space is limited, we ask all those intending to attend to RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will reply within the next couple of days to confirm your seat. For those who can’t make it, do not fear! We plan to tape the panel and post the video online shortly after the event, so you’ll be able to watch (surveil?) the discussion from your home computer.
