Designing Dystopia: Exploring the Dark Side of Tech

As the adage goes: keep your friends close and your enemies closer. We can’t continue blindly evangelizing about the positive impact of technology. Its potential for negative influence is starting to spill out into our world–fake news, rise of hate groups through filter bubbles, cyberterrorism. To fully understand the impact technology could have on our future, we must dive into its dark side. In this workshop, participants will be harnessing the power of tech in service of the forces of evil. We’ll be writing evil business plans, inventing evil products and services, and competing to see who will be crowned evil genius of FoST.
