Please join the Brown Institute in celebrating the book launch of “Terms of Service: Understanding Our Role in the World of Big Data,” a comic novella by J-School alum Michael Keller and Josh Neufeld. “Terms of Service” examines the role of technology and the implications of sharing personal information online, and is available through Al Jazeera America at projects.aljazeera.com/2014/terms-of-service.
The event will take place in the Brown Institute for Media Innovation on Wednesday, February 25 at 6pm. Please RSVP at brwn.co/tos.
The evening will commence with a panel discussion where the author and illustrator will explain their approach to crafting a thought provoking, entertaining field guide to help people understand how their personal, and often very private, data is collected and used. The panel will be followed by a reception and book signing.
