#disruptivebytes: What’s Eating Kate Green?
6th September 2016
12-1pm

Read More

Join us, for a special #disruptivebyte as Kate Green takes us on a journey through her digital relationship, the good times, and the bad. Join Kate’s call to action and sign up now! Simply bring your surveillance device of choice (phone, laptop, tablet etc.) and join the conversation online using #disruptivebytes and @kategreen28.

Kate is doing a special disruptive byte on her last day working for the Disruptive Media Learning Lab before moving onto pastures new starting her PhD in Lifelong Digital Footprints at the University of Nottingham. Be sure to sign up early to receive special emails from her that will help you to discover your digital footprints.

“Who even uses a Road Atlas anymore? It goes without saying that Silicon Valley has radically disrupted our lives through seamless (and reasonably affordable) technology. But I present an alternative history, one of someone whom seems ordinary and far from the Eric Schmidts and Mark Zuckerbergs of our times. It is a tale of my digital relationship through the good times and the bad, discovering its betrayal. It is a call for action to support my aims to support other seemingly ordinary people like myself.

Join me on the Hill for an interactive disruptivebytes.”
– Kate Green
