A&S Pol-Science: Film & Discussion (1/1)
** CANCELLED **
|Time:||Mon Jan 14 2013 06:30 PM to 09:30 PM|
A special screening of the cyber attack film "CODE 2600" (a film by Jeremy Zerechak) followed by an open discussion. The film is related to the joint IT/Political Science class "Cyberattack" offer during the 2013 spring semester and taught by Professor Mark Stockman (IT) and Professor Richard Harknett (Political Science).
CODE 2600 documents the rise of the Information Technology Age as told through the events and people who helped build and manipulate it. The film explores the impact this new connectivity has on our ability to remain human while maintaining our personal privacy and security.
As we struggle to comprehend the wide-spanning, socio-technical fallout caused by data collection and social networks, our modern culture is caught in an undercurrent of cyber-attacks, identity theft and privacy invasion. Both enlightening and disturbing, CODE 2600 is a provocative wake-up call for a society caught in the grips of a global technology takeover.
