11:00am to 12:00pm
Even "real life" activists have to navigate online spaces--online activists obviously more so. Unfortunately, the power that online activism can lend can easily turn against activists. How do we protect our content from hackers, spammers, and trolls? How to we maintain security while simultaneously engaging in online activism--an act that requires us to put our content out into the interwebspaceplace? Expect conversation on basic content protection measures, DDOS attacks and how to subvert them, and beyond.

From Tim: “Technology in skepticism is my specialty, so I knew I had to be involved in Skeptech in 2013. The organizers did such a fantastic job with it, you’d have to bar the door to keep me away from the 2014 edition! I’m sure it will be a blast.”
