How safe are our mobiles? and Music Tech Fest
This week on the podcast I have been learning about mobile safety and I’ve had my mind blown at the first Music Tech fest in London. So, why would a mobile phone seem unsafe?
Well, the pocket rocket that we all seem to carry with us may emit more information than you know.
It’s a handy tool of course, but as it may now give up your location as well as many other details, people like activists and journalists in some countries would do well to think about how they use them.
Katrin Verclas runs an organisation called Mobile Active which has a site called Safer Mobile. Recently on Safer Mobile Katrin published a guide for journalists so I asked her to tell us a bit more about the problems.
At the end of last week the first Music Tech Fest at Ravensbourne in London took place.
I went to go and find out what the future of digital music creation, performance and applications might be like and it was a pretty intensive display with plenty of food for thought.
Until next week,
