I recently worked on a project with UCL’s Public Policy team exploring how universities can help to implement an inclusive economy in a post-COVID-19 London. The results of our consultation with academics, policy makers and industry experts has been written up into a blog post, check it out here.
Hack_Curio is an online collection of video clips and essays about hackers, put together by a team of academics who study hacker culture. After seeing a talk by two of the project’s founders at 36c3, I offered to write an entry about the Chaos Communication Congress itself based on the documentary “All Creatures Welcome” by Sandra Trostel. Check it out here.
Universities are shifting en masse to solutions like Zoom or Microsoft Teams to manage remote teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is vital that classrooms do not become spaces for data extraction. I’m part of a collective called ZOOM OUT that’s pushing universities to adopt in-house open source solutions. You can read our manifesto, and an overview of Zoom’s privacy and security violations, on Medium.
