Description

Social media companies and "surveillance capitalists" wield unprecedented power, not just to predict behavior, but to control it. They tend to make more money when they divide us and convince us that our lives our lacking. While some people feel overwhelmed and helpless, we as individuals and small groups already have tools to resist.

In this program, Dr. Matthew Tift, a web developer and free software advocate, offers ideas about how individuals and groups can use technology ethically to deepen human connections. This program provides a high-level of overview of some of the technologies that Lake Fellowship uses to ensure we provide a kind and ethical online presence. While this program will reveal how the Lake Fellowship uses technology, the themes discussed are applicable to individuals who endeavor to use technology to increase awareness, reduce stress, deepen connections, and improve overall well-being.

Today's meeting is via Zoom, and co-hosted by Lake Fellowship members Kristin Fulkerson and Terry McGlynn. You can join the group starting at 10:15 a.m. and the program will begin at 10:30. To join, please check your email for the Zoom link, or request a link by sending an email to info@lakefellowship.org. We'll try to get back to you as soon as possible.
