How Not to Die: Using Tech in a Dictatorship

SXSW 2012

#sxsw #dictator

 A discussion about how technologies that are often built in the west are being used around the world in extremely dangerous situations. Often there isn’t an idea of how to protect individuals and their human rights when developing these tools, even when they’re being used by activists and changemakers around the world. This panel will present concrete examples from Burma, Tibet, Liberia and Egypt.
