Impakt’s tip: Symposium DATA PANIC / TRUE PLAY
Saturday 10th September | 14 hours | Concordia Cinema, 15 Old Market, Enschede | Free entry
The symposium focuses on the full spectrum of availability and processing of information. Starting from new social phenomena to Internet hoaxing and disinformation. Peter Oltshoorn is one of the speakers at this symposium. The historian and journalist is mainly concerned with the social implications of the Internet and the untruths in politics and media. He is the founder of Netkwesties.nl and Leugens.nl.
Oltshoorn wrote about the discussions concerning the issue ofDSK and the chambermaid, the agreements made by the BuZa regarding the “alleged” kidnapping case in which Mariko Peters (Groenlinks MP) was involved and a story about a dating sitethat connects students with sugar daddy’s but claims to have purely altruistic reasons for doing this.
In 2010 “The Power of Google” written by Oltshoorn was published, in which he makes an indept exploration of the Google-empire. In short an interesting thinker and a promising symposium, so go forth!
