HUBweek 2015 is a wrap. 46,000 people took part in this weeklong celebration of the work and impact at the intersection of art, science, and technology in Greater Boston. The festival was co-founded by Harvard, MIT, MGH, and the Boston Globe, and benefited from creative collaborators from dozens of institutions across the region.
A few of my favorite moments:
“Who you are; who parents think you are; who your computer thinks you are can be three totally separate people.”
“We live in the Golden Age of surveillance, where law can subvert technology and technology can subvert law … the most intimate surveillance device I have is my cell phone.”
– Bruce Schneier, presenting on The Future of Privacy and Security in a Big Data World
“Metadata isn’t neutral.”
“Narrative of podcast can be as technology, business, or the art form – and the most interesting is the art form.”
