*WORKSHOPS*


*Big Data In Our Hands*?

Big data is rarely seen as a phenomenon of co-production
although more than 75% of the data constituting our
digital universe is co-produced by us, the people, in the
course of our daily (digital) lives. So, how do we turn
big data into our digital commons? The workshop
âBig Data In Our Hands?â discusses a position paper being
collaboratively developed by Berliner Gazette for
transforming the administration and control of big data
away from large corporations like Google or government
bodies like the NSA and towards common and public institutions.

Workshop guests include Avantika Banerjee (wiredandnetworked.com),
Sophie Bloemen (commonsnetwork.eu), Benjamin Cadon (labomedia.org),
Max Haiven (Radical Imagination Project), Danislava Marinova
(Universitat AutÃnoma de Barcelona), Tomislav Medak (mi2.hr),
Jaron Rowan (Xnet), Andrà Wilkens (Analog ist das neue Bio),
Nikolai Wolfert (Leila). Moderators: Ela Kagel (Supermarkt)
+ Christopher Senf (berlinergazette.de).

Info: Workshop on October 22+23, 10 a.m.â6 p.m.
and on October 24, 10â12 a.m.

The registration fee is 50 Euro, including catering.
Registration is required by September 30 under
the following email: info(at)berlinergazette.de


*Are We Up For Anonymity*?

Anonymity is a controversial issue in the post-Snowden
world. While serving as a vehicle for criminalization
of various cultures, many communities experiment with
concepts that try to resolve the destructive potential
of anonymity. How to create common sense and a healthy
âweâ with regard to anonymity? The workshop
âAre We Up For Anonymity?â tackles the world of online
forums in the field of journalism by developing
a storytelling project about those issues.

Workshop guests include Ingrid Brodnig* (profil.at),
Benedikt Fecher* (hiig.de), Inga Lirenkadan (34mag.net),

the following email: info(at)berlinergazette.de


*Who Reads Open Secrets*?

Journalism based on leaks is often limited to
hegemonic patterns of interpretation and interest.
For now, leaks are mostly manifestations of the constricted
views of governments and corporations. Meanwhile working
with leaked documents remains an exclusive undertaking.
How can we break those walls? The workshop âWho Reads Open Secrets?â
takes the Romanian Center for Investigative Journalism
(RCIJ) as a test case, inviting participants to design
a framework, in which the general public participates
in investigative projects as easily as in a game of monopoly.

Workshop guests include Kat Austen (worldflows.net),
Andreea Bonea (The Sponge), Chris Csikszentmihalyi (M-ITI),
Abiol Lual Deng (Kendake Partners), Tabea Grzeszyk
(hostwriter, Berlin), Nana Karlstetter (TCIJ.org),
Sebastian Mondial* (Die Zeit), MC McGarth* (transparencytoolkit.org),
Alex Morega (RosEDU), Valentina Pavel (ApTI),
Pit Schultz (reboot.fm), Maria Xynou (Tactical Tech),
Christoph Zeiher (Tagesspiegel). Moderators:
Stefan Candea (eijc.eu) + Marie Gutbub (CryptoParty).

Info: Workshop on October 22+23, 10 a.m.â6 p.m.
and on October 24, 10â12 a.m.

The registration fee is 50 Euro, including catering.
Registration is required by September 30 under
the following email: info(at)berlinergazette.de


*Whistleblower Goes Otaku*

How can the debates caused by the Snowden revelations
infiltrate the consciousness of the so called silent
majority? The workshop âWhistleblower Goes Otakuâ
takes the global otaku community as testing ground.
Their remix culture is full of affinities to the
whistleblower and hacker culture represented by Snowden.
Yet, how can deeper ties evolve? Responses to this challenge
are being developed within the workshop â entering
the next Otaku Festival in Bucharest.

Workshop guests include Yuuki Abe (Cosplaids),
Sophie Bayerlein (sophiesophie.de), Bogdan Gorganeanu
(otakufestival.com), Alina Floroi (Laborazon),

Stefan Tiron (otakufestival.com), Luke ZuberbÃhler (japanimanga-night.ch).
Moderators: Lilian Masuhr (berlinergazette.de) +
Michael Prinzinger (berlinergazette.de).

Info: Workshop on October 22+23, 10 a.m.â6 p.m.
and on October 24, 10â12 a.m.

The registration fee is 50 Euro, including catering.
Registration is required by September 30 under
the following email: info(at)berlinergazette.de

does it mean to handle the documents in a responsible manner?
