TECHNO-ACTIVISM THIRD MONDAY
MONDAY 20 JANUARY
AN EVENING OF NETWORKING AND DISCUSSIONS ON SECURITY, SURVEILLANCE AND CENSORSHIP.
Joining an international community of monthly tech meetups, Techno-activism Third Monday (TA3M) is the product of a conversation with Lighthouse Studio resident Chris Pinchen, who decided to bring the practical skills, discussions, and community surrounding this established event to Lighthouse. This meetup aims to consider current concerns of surveillance and censorship, and is open to all levels of expertise and technical knowledge. TA3M aims to bring a larger community together, to learn in a supportive and informative environment.
Aimed at forging networks and creating communities, the meetups bring together a diversity of people interested in surveillance, censorship and open technology to explore common goals, ways of working together and skill and knowledge sharing.
The second Brighton Techno-Activism 3rd Monday will bring together local people to present, and discuss, projects they are involved with through short talks. Tickets are free, but booking is advised as places are limited, to register your interest book here.
Aptivate believes in the power of knowledge and communication to alleviate poverty, suffering and conflict, and in the right of every individual to inform and be informed. We collaborate with NGOs to strengthen the use of IT in their programmes, offer impartial advice on strategy, policy, implementation and procurement and build robust, accessible and usable software, mobile and web services. We are experts in low-bandwidth and appropriate technologies and leaders in the field of bandwidth management, improving communications networks.
At #TA3M we will be focusing on our internal open source decision making tool Econsensus and hope to gain some interest from the open source community to help us further it’s use as a community tool for effective communication and it’s continued development

Internet Filtering in the UK: what could possibly go wrong? Blocking and filtering of the Internet in Britain is on the rise. Internet Service Providers are blocking some sites by court order. We also have default-on mobile Internet filtering and the ‘nudge’ censorship of broadband ISPs. Hear about how ORG is trying to bring some transparency to these debates and highlighting problems around overblocking and one-size-fits-all filters.
