ORGCon, the UK’s biggest digital rights conference, is back for the fifth time and this year is going to be the biggest one yet! ORGCon will take place on November 4-5, 2017, 9am -5.30pm. Let the Digital Fightback begin!
Are we at a tipping point for online abuse? Will killer robots change policing? How are extremists using the Internet and can we do anything about it? Is the Internet empowering the marginalised or the most powerful? How are the online rights of people of colour, women, and other marginalised groups being disproportionately affected by regressive laws and online abuse? What are the surveillance developments we should be worrying about next? How can open data transform government? Does the age verification of porn put our privacy and free speech at risk?
These are some of the questions we will be asking at ORGCon 2017. Our amazing line up of writers, technologists and experts will look at the threats we face and what we can do about them. But we'll also be talking about how the Internet has changed politics and campaigning for the good, and how we can harness this to give ordinary citizens a voice, and help to hold the powerful to account.
Confirmed to speak so far: Graham Linehan, Noel Sharkey, Helen Lewis, Nighat Dad, Azmina Dhrodia, Caroline Criado-Perez, Tracy King, Jamie Bartlett, Myles Jackman, Pandora Blake, Nanjira Sambuli, Audrey Tang and more.
