Cameron Finucane hosted the first meeting of a very broad, participant-driven workshop held at 6pm on Monday evenings at Ithaca Generator. The workshop series aims to increase awareness of issues relating to the social and political effects of technology by shedding light on the inner workings of the “black boxes” in our lives. Participants will explore commonly-used technologies through directed play and experimentation, with an emphasis on implicit assumptions, failure cases, and other shortcomings. Learn to become a more empowered user of technology!
