Your Data in the Cloud: Privacy, Ownership, Convenience

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

There’s no topic with more buzz around it than the “cloud.” However, for all the aspects of our social and commercial lives we entrust to the cloud, at the same time we surrender our data, and increasingly our memories and finances, to others. Who controls that data, who protects it and who ensures our privacy? There are however possibilities for creating one’s own cloud, and retaining a measure control over off-site data and services, both software and hardware based. We’ll explore a number of solutions to the notion of a personal cloud, and the trade-offs inherent in that choice.

LEVEL: Intermediate
