in Asian Cyberspace

Technical workshop 3

THE third and final day of the conference is devoted to learning tools and mechanisms for protecting Asian cyberspace. Nart Villeneuve of the Toronto-based Citizen Lab and Ethan Zuckerman of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at the Harvard Law School are currently handling the day-long technical sessions on two levels:

  • first, knowing if you’re being blocked, censored or monitored, and
  • second, knowing the Web tools for anonymizing and getting around blocking, filtering and monitoring

Their presentation can be accessed here. Or listen to the first half of the presentation: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
