Event description: 

Come to New Haven’s own makerspace and learn more about digital self-defense, collaborate on tech projects, and bounce ideas off of each other about techno-activism related to censorship, surveillance, Free and Open-Source Software, Open Hardware, and Free Culture in general.

Techno-Activism Third Mondays (TA3M) is an informal meetup designed to connect creators, technologists and activists. TA3M events are held all over the world and are explicitly informal and open. You are invited to hack the process, ask questions, and be critical.

NHv TA3M 001: Surveillance Mapping

Surveillance cameras / devices are popping up all over New Haven, with “Looking Good, New Haven!” signs posted at high-traffic intersections and multiple cameras on many of the traffic lights and buildings in the city.  In the public interest, Privacy Lab is mapping these devices one-by-one using OpenStreetMap and Surveillance under Surveillance.  Help us crowdsource this effort and learn how to add cameras and other surveillance devices to OpenStreetMap.  We’ll also show you how to upload photos to Wikimedia Commons so that they can be added to points on the map, as well as how to strip metadata from photos (EXIF data).
