'Do you accept the terms and conditions?'

Featured image

A streaming service that stops in the middle of the film to explain the privacy conditions extensively. A toaster that only toasts half of your bread if you consume too much electricity in your home. A platform that collects and combines social media updates to determine when you are not at home, and therefore vulnerable to a burglary.

How can you, as a designer, build and express friction into your product, so that the user is helped to critically reflect on technology and possibly even link actions to it? Such design principles are expressed in adversarial and reflective design.

During this meetup, in collaboration with Hackers & Designers and SURF, we explore the potential of adversarial and reflective design as a means to create awareness about ethical dilemmas surrounding digital technology and privacy. You do not need a background in design or technology to participate in the workshop.

Tickets cost 5 euro (including a drink)

This event is in Dutch, unless there are many English speakers in the audience.
