Our Running 20/20 Mar 2017 Meetup is a joint venture together with Bits of Groningen, the local chapter of Dutch digital rights organization Bits of Freedom. This special Meetup will be hosted by Launch Café Groningen. In our Meetup format, three speakers will deliver a 30 minute ‘Ted Talk-like’ presentation. The presentations are high-content and are meant to trigger thoughts and (inter) action. Naturally, drinks and snacks will be provided.

When we talk about privacy, we often talk about human rights and security. This Meetup will take a different approach: we will talk about privacy in relation to sports and health. Many people have become avid gatherers of all sorts of data about themselves: average heart rate, average speed, total calories burned, etc. There are many wearables on the market that help you to measure almost anything about yourself. What does this mean for your privacy, when this data is accessed and used by third parties? What kind of image could others derive about you, your lifestyle and health? The invited speakers will explore both risks and opportunities, from their perspective and expertise.
