The talk is non-technical and aims to be both thought provoking and a bit of fun. The intention is to stir debate... It is largely the same talk I gave at last years Software Freedom Day.
The talk will be held at 7pm tonight (Thursday 8th October) in the Hannah Maclure Centre (the top floor of Abertay’s student union on Bell Street). The talk is open to all.
"In this powerful visual talk Rick looks at the duality between Freedom and Control and how governments and corporations use technology to maximise control over us. The stakes are now higher than ever as the Internet and modern communications technology represent both technological salvation and slavery. Rick looks at what we can do to free ourselves from proprietary control and emancipate ourselves from the shackles of proprietary controlling technologies."
