Future Proof: Imagining a tech positive future

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Come help us envision a tech positive future and plot the steps necessary to get us there. Our community is fighting against repression on so many fronts, it's hard to keep up. I worry that too many people around the world are surrendering to the idea that technology can only create and empower evil. I want to take some time to step back together with the leaders in the global community that attend Rightscon, to work toward an overarching story that we can tell the rest of the world and that helps builds us toward an empowered, tech positive future. My hope is that we can identify themes and stories that we can all use to help us convince the rest of the world that technology can be used to build a better world.
