The DiscoTech (short for "Discovering Technology") event was developed by the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition as a space to learn about the impact and possibilities of technology within our communities. The DiscoTech model has spread beyond Detroit, through sessions at the Allied Media Conference and through the the publication of the "How To DiscoTech" zine. This Friday, the Codesign Studio of the MIT Center for Civic Media brings the DiscoTech to an impressively diverse range of locations: San Francisco; Karachi, Pakistan; Bangalore, India; Ramallah, Palestine; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Mexico City; Boston, and New York City. The theme of this series of DiscoTechs is counter-surveillance.
The Allied Media Conference is a participant-driven event. We need your session proposals! The deadline to propose a session is Saturday, March 1.
