Experiment #1: Website Privacy Extreme
Website privacy extreme

As of 25 May 2018, the new EU privacy law (GDPR) will become enforceable, affecting artists and cultural activists just as much as big corporations. While businesses work out the fine balance between collecting data and keeping it legal (and pay lawyers to do that), how about not even having privacy-relevant issues on your site?

During this hands-on evening, we discuss where our websites (often unknowingly; be ready to be surprised!) aggregate or leak user data and together work on solutions to protect our users' privacy to the max. This is not a GDPR seminar and definitely no binding legal advice, but an experimental hacking event for active webizens concerned about privacy first and legal compliance second. As the title promises, the goal is to take it to the extreme: challenging "common practices" and pushing the boundaries.

The event's format is ideation, exchange, co-working and creative hacking. The facilitator brings along some privacy and GDPR background, tools and strategies - we all fire up the code editors and make things happen. Everybody assists each other - tech skills should not be a limitation for participation! A blog post will document the achievements.
