If you’re in the Bay Area tonight, June 15, join Ars editors Annalee Newitz and Cyrus Farivar for the filming of our third episode of Ars Technica Live, a monthly interview series with fascinating people who work at the intersection of tech, science, and culture. Our guest tonight at Oakland’s legendary Longitude bar is journalist Sarah Jeong, who will discuss online harassment and what technologists can do about it.
Doors are at 7pm and the discussion starts at 7:30.
Filmed before a live audience in Oakland tiki bar Longitude (located on 347 14th Street), each episode of Ars Technica Live is a speculative, informal conversation between your fine hosts Annalee Newitz and Cyrus Farivar and an invited guest.
The audience—that would be you—is also invited to join the conversation and ask questions.
These aren’t soundbyte setups; they are deep cuts from the frontiers of research and creativity.
This month’s event is about online harassment, trolling, and cleaning up Internet garbage.
Guest Sarah Jeong is a Poynter Fellow in Journalism at Yale and the author of the book The Internet of Garbage. She writes for magazines and newspapers about the overlap between policy, tech, and the law.
Doors are at 7pm, and the live recording is from 7:30 to 8:00pm (be sure to get there early if you want a seat).
Then you can stick around for informal discussion at the bar, along with delicious tiki drinks and snacks.
Can’t make it out to Oakland? Never fear! Episodes will be posted to Ars Technica the week after the live events. We also have a Facebook event page.
For those who attended last month, we’ll have a new speaker setup so it should be easier to hear everything.
Audio technology is the final frontier.
And if you’re planning ahead, Ars Technica Live #4 will be on July 27, with an amazing guest TBA.
