Developing Resilient Data Infrastructures

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How do you maintain access to important public data amidst political instability and risk? While Trump's election motivated rapid data preservation efforts, we are faced with long-standing data infrastructure vulnerability. Starting with DataRescue's paths--technical preservation, community organizing, and storytelling--we will collaboratively strategize how to strengthen networks addressing this problem and envision a more resilient infrastructure for data vital to community-based activism.

This is a brown bag meetup so feel free to bring your lunch!
