About DTL Hack Day
A 12 hours hack day to work together on building tools that help educating users on the importance of privacy and transparency
The Data Transparency Lab hosted a 12-hours hack day, collocated with DTL 2016 conference. The hack day main topic was “User Education on Privacy and Transparency”. We were looking for ideas to help users understand why they should care about privacy and why they should demand online services to be more transparent.
Apps (mobile app, browser plugin, web site, etc.) that let users understand the privacy implications of actions they do.
We have access to multiple sources of data that could be useful to users, we are looking for ways to create impactful visualizations that raise awareness on privacy/transparency.
Platforms (websites, videos, comics, etc.) that can be used in an innovative way to communicate adequately the need for privacy and transparency.
