Graduate Forum on Hacking, Ethics, & Community TODAY


January 30, 2014

Participate in an MIT graduate student forum on questions from the report “MIT and the Prosecution of Aaron Swartz.” Hosted by Faculty Chair Steven Hall and Biology Professor Chris Kaiser, this forum will take place on January 30th from 5:00-6:00 pm in the Mezzanine Lounge at the Student Center (W20-307). You will have the opportunity to share your views on hacking, ethics, responsibility, and community, as well as other issues raised in the report. Among the questions we invite input on are: What lessons can we draw for MIT’s hacker culture from the Aaron Swartz case? Should an MIT education address the personal ethics and legal obligations of technology empowerment? What are the moral, ethical, and legal challenges that face MIT and the broader community in our increasingly technological and connected society? Hosted by Faculty Chair Steven Hall and Biology Professor Chris Kaiser, in collaboration with the Graduate Student Council. Photo by Thomas Hawk.
