Center for Social Justice Workshop: Occupy.HERE & RACHEL-Pi: “Off the Grid” Network Devices for Social Justice, Activism and Education with Don Undeen, Manager of Maker Hub
The Center for Social Justice invites you to participate in its Fall 2018 CSJ Workshops series. On Friday, November 2, Don Undeen, Manager of the Maker Hub, will present, "Occupy.HERE & RACHEL-Pi: “Off the Grid” Network Devices for Social Justice, Activism and Education." Occupy.here is a software project built in support of the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City and other occupations beyond Zuccotti Park. The software is designed to run on locally-hosted hardware without an upstream Internet connection. With occupy.here, users can anonymously share messages and files. RACHEL-Pi is a Raspberry Pi-based WIFI device that can serve educational content when internet access is unavailable or cost prohibitive. In this workshop we will get hands-on with both devices, look at customization opportunities, and discuss the benefits and risks of accessing a “hyper local” intranet when internet access is unavailable or inadvisable.
Friday, November 2 at 3:30pm to 5:00pm
Joseph Mark Lauinger Memorial Library, The Maker Hub (1st floor)
