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." PirateBox is a DIY anonymous offline file-sharing and communications system built with free software and inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware. The software is designed to run on locally-hosted hardware without an upstream Internet connection. With PirateBox, 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
