  • Securing Your Data in a Target-Rich Environment

    by Darren Kitchen

    Each year, thousands of technophiles descend upon Austin, bringing Internet-connected laptops, phones and tablets with them, and most of them think very little about keeping their personal communications secure. Open wireless networks in the convention center – and in hotels, bars and coffee shops – offer a convenient way to keep in touch with home, but also leave any data that is transmitted over those networks open to snooping by malicious individuals. In this session, host of Revision3 podcast Hak.5 and regular contributor on the TWiT network, Darren Kitchen, will walk attendees through live demonstrations of many ways in which their personal data are vulnerable while connected to the Internet at SXSW, and the steps they can take to keep that data private and safe. The tips and information from this session will benefit those who attend not only while they are at SXSW, but any time they sit down at their own local coffee shop and open up their laptop to fire off some email.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Saturday 10th March

  • Self-Hacking: Self-Knowledge & Data Literacy

    by Adriana Lukas

    Self-hacking is about self-awareness, pattern spotting and behaviour change. It focuses on the end result of data collection: understanding and action. As important is "data literacy" i.e. data expertise at individual level, not just for businesses and institutions. Uncovering hidden cause and effect in one's behaviour increases individual's autonomy. To self-hack, we need to have access to analytical tools and raw data. Current 'info-graphics' are a far cry from the power a sophisticated data analysis could give to an individual user. What if I want to analyse my data differently to the analysis, let's say, Withings scales app provides, cross-analyse it with my travel data from Tripit to see if my weight is related to change in my diet during travel. Or any other activity I care to track. The possibilities are endless, if only individual users had access to their data and to far more sophisticated tools for data analysis and visualisation.

    At 3:30pm to 4:30pm, Monday 12th March
