With rapidly developing new media and modes of mass communication, we continuously absorb information as well as giving information about ourselves. From political leaks to twitter, mobile location finders to credit card use, information is collected and roams. The beneficiaries are clear, with possible political advantages, marketing opportunities, subliminal advertising and surveillance as well as greater access to information for all of us. Who controls what information is circulated and to whom? And to what extent does censorship conflict with freedom of information or overlap with data protection and privacy?

Speakers include Heather Brooke (writer and journalist), Professor Brian Cathcart (Kingston University) and Peter Barron (Google). The event will be Chaired by Becky Hogge (Little Atoms)

Curated with Little Atoms.
Little Atoms is a live talk show on Resonance 104.4FM exploring ideas and culture, with guests from worlds of science, journalism, politics, arts, academia and human rights. The show is presented and produced by Neil Denny and Padraig Reidy.
