#SAGETalks returns with the third installment of the SAGE Ocean Speaker Series. Keith Porcaro, fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center, will present his work on data trusts, a legal tool for governing and protecting digital movements.
Our digital lives are built on the promises of strangers. Promises about how technology will change your life, or who will maintain this code, or what will happen to your data. When projects and organizations fail, the technology that we rely on may change, or be abandoned, or disappear entirely. This talk will cover what we can do about it. Keith Porcaro, fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center, will present his work on data trusts, a legal tool for governing and protecting digital movements.
To attend this free event please register before June 11th to secure your spot. There will also be FREE pizza and drinks provided at the event. If you can’t attend, the event will be live streamed @SAGEOceanTweet.
