Event description

Description

Is your metadata a trail of breadcrumbs that anyone can follow?

You know Melbourne – but how well does the city know you? You’ll be surprised by how much of your life can be pieced together from your metadata footprint – the traces you leave when you use everyday technology. Don’t believe it? Join Digital Rights Watch in a live hack of Candy Bowers – actor, activist, and hip hop artist; writer, comedian, and fierce feminist; poet, performer, and producer. Track Candy as she makes her way through Melbourne, using phone tower logs, Myki touch-ons, wi-fi signals, RFID tags, and other digital records to reveal what she’s doing – and who can find out.

[Please note this event is wheelchair accessible]
