Blue Hill Public Library, the Howard Room
5 Parker Point Rd, Blue Hill

Facilitators – Scott Miller and Mike Wolf
Time and Date – Thursdays, 1:30 – 3:30 pm, March 17, 24, 31, April 7
Location – Howard Room, Blue Hill Public Library

This colloquy will explore the privacy and security implications of our increasingly “networked” lives. The risk is not just with use of computers: Use a “smartphone?” Have a car with OnStar? Considered a home security/monitoring system? Shop online? Shop at physical stores (think “Target”)? All of these provide information about you to “the cloud”. . . with attendant security and privacy implications. This will be a practical colloquy for non?technical participants, with hands-on demonstration of some of the tips, traps, and best practices for accessing the internet.

Each week’s session will be organized to anticipate about an hour of lecture/discussion, including “live” computer demonstration, followed by an hour of Q&A, discussion and group troubleshooting on that week’s subject.

The colloquy will be moderated by Scott Miller and Mike Wolf, Blue Hill “techno?weenies.”
