About this event :

Fábrica Moritz

At our TEDxBarcelonaSalon events we foster networking, dialog and the discussion among all members of TEDxBarcelona. In order to achieve this we meet once a month and listen to an interesting talk. After watching the talk we discuss about the presented subject. In order to make this event effective we limit the number of attendees.
From February on, all TEDxBarcelonaSalon events are taking place in the Moritz factory at Ronda Sant Antoni 41.

Mikko Hypponen: How the NSA betrayed the world’s trust — time to act

Recent events have highlighted, underlined and bolded the fact that the United States is performing blanket surveillance on any foreigner whose data passes through an American entity — whether they are suspected of wrongdoing or not. This means that, essentially, every international user of the internet is being watched, says Mikko Hypponen. An important rant, wrapped with a plea: to find alternative solutions to using American companies for the world’s information needs. Mikko Hypponen

We watched the video of his talk altogether (in english with spanish subtitles). Afterwards, we discussed about the current situation and look at possible alternatives available today already.
We finished the event with networking and a beer for everyone. The entrance was free.
