Join us at Nexa Center for Internet & Society, on Wednesday April 8th 2015 from 6pm to 8pm, for an open discussion about and around the concept of the Ubiquitous Commons, the international research effort which is bringing about the development of a legal and technological toolkit through which people and organizations will be able to re-establish the power balance in deciding how their information is used.
The event will take place at Nexa, in Via Boggio 65/a, Turin (first floor).
In occasion of the 74th Nexa Wednesday, a recurring event which each week brings together practitioners, theorists, researchers and academics to discuss important issues regarding technologies, society and the law, on April 8th, we will discuss the Ubiquitous Commons together with Salvatore Iaconesi, the research coordinator of the project, and Ugo Pagallo, Professor at the University of Turin, Faculty Fellow at Nexa and who got interested in the project since its creation.
