Internet Identity Workshop IIW XXXI @ Online
Oct 20 all-day

You belong at IIW this Fall!  You’ll acquire the real-time pulse of genuinely disruptive technologies that are the foundation of today’s important Internet movements.

Every IIW moves topics, code, and projects downfield.  Name an identity topic and it’s likely that more substantial discussion and work has been done at IIW than any other conference!

IIW XXXI will be our second online event. While we miss being with everyone in person, we have found that the online event isn’t just an acceptable substitute, but a real workshop in its own right with considerable advantages. Being virtual will allow many more people from around the world to participate in the important discussions that happen at each IIW.

“From my perspective, IIW is the seminal conference for the digital identity space. The feedback & technical insight garnered here is so invaluable for my company that we build our internal product roadmap around the twice-yearly conference. I was admittedly skeptical about the event going fully virtual, but the organizers managed the transition with little to no loss in collaborative nature or connections. I was very pleased with the value and turnout, and am already looking forward to the next one!”

Karyl Fowler | CEO | transmute industries

How It Works

IIW is at its heart a participatory conference, it is an Open Space unConference.  It has no keynotes or panels, so it’s about getting stuff done!

Our schedule will be much the same as the online event in April, with some additional session times. The agenda will be created live each day by attendees present at the opening circle (the same as when we meet F2F in Mountain View).

Through dozens of sessions,you’ll have plenty of chances to present your ideas, engage in challenging dialog, and make new professional connections.  The Open Space unConference format is perfect for a rapidly moving field where the organizing team cannot what needs to be discussed. We know great people will be at IIW XXXI. The attendees who have a passion for learning and contributing to the event makes it the success it is.

This is the time and place that you get to discuss, share your knowledge, work on and learn about anything & everything related to Internet Identity today. You can find Books of Proceedings for all previous IIW Events here.

“IIW XXX completely changed my mind about ‘virtual conferences’. I was quite skeptical that it could be even remotely as effective as the in-person IIW events—of which I’ve never missed a single one. But IIW XXX not only captured most of the same interactions, it actually proved to be MORE INTENSE than the in-person event because there are multiple channels alive at the same time—the Zoom Rooms, the Zoom chat, and then the Garden rooms and side channels that form and keep going throughout the event. Plus being virtual meant many more people around the world could attend. In fact, it was so engaging that I left the event feeling that at least one of every two IIWs should be virtual now.”

How to Change the World in One Generation – DxE Intro Workshop @ Online
Oct 24 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Right now the most vulnerable individuals are being exploited on a massive scale and it will only get worse if we don’t take action now. But can we as average citizens really make a difference to help them? The answer is YES. In Direct Action Everywhere’s workshop, you will learn the history of social movements, the ground-breaking new research that shows the power of ordinary people, and the bold plan to nonviolently abolish the most harmful industry on earth that kills billions of animals every year.

March Against Extinction @ Union Square
Oct 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
It’s been over 600 Days since SF Declared the Climate Emergency, and Nothing Has Happened.

Over 4 million acres have burned (an area larger than Connecticut)—in 2018, 1.8 million acres burned. Over 31 people and thousands of wild and farmed animals have perished in the last month due to the raging wildfires, drought, and erratic weather conditions. SFO and Oakland International Airports are due to be inoperable and underwater by 2050 OR SOONER. We cannot accept more business as usual, unless we desire extinction.

Extinction Rebellion is demanding that the government act NOW!

Come join us as we chalk the sidewalks, drop banners, post flyers, and mobilize the masses with face-to-face (socially distanced) outreach. At 2:00pm, we will hold speak outs at the steps of SF City Hall and demand that our government #TellTheTruth, #ActNow by establishing a #NetZero2025 carbon emissions goal, and convening a #CitizensAssembly to reach that goal. WE MUST SECURE A LIVABLE FUTURE FOR ALL BY 2030.. We will need YOUR support! We will be following COVID-19 safety guidelines, so please bring your face cover and remember to socially distance!

For more information, visit XRAmerica.org

Business as Usual = DEATH

Socialist Night School: Towards a Green New Deal @ ONLINE, VIA 'ZOOM'
Nov 5 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join Zoom Meeting

https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87801691687?pwd=R1ZCdjl3UVdEd2hpTi9la2dUVzZOQT09

In 2018 the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released an alarming report, stating that the world needed to steeply cut its carbon emissions and make radical changes in order to limit the planet’s temperature from rising to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. If that goal wasn’t met, the report predicted a horrifying increase in suffering for almost all life and ecological collapses.

In America, this report was met on the political Left by sustained calls for the abolition of capitalist exploitation of people and the planet. The rationale was that capitalism’s imperative for endless economic growth required massive amounts of energy, the vast majority of which is still produced through fossil fuels. Some of the specific responses were reinvigorated support for anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist struggles by Indigenous peoples, surges in attendance at climate strikes, and great support for proposals like the Green New Deal by elected officials.

East Bay DSA will explore this theme in a Socialist Night School mini-series, co-organized with our Green New Deal Committee. These three events will explore what it means to be an ecosocialist, the Red Deal and Indigenous struggle, and how to fight for a Green New Deal after Bernie.

——

In this final Night School in our mini-series, we’ll attempt to answer a perennial question in our prior sessions: “How do we actually win a Green New Deal, especially after Bernie’s loss?” We’ve dedicated this time to making a space for us to attempt an answer.

Our readings offer an array of ways to understand a Green New Deal and strategies and tactics we might employ, to supplement our own ideas. And we’re joined by Thea Riofrancos, whose experience and expertise has already proved invaluable by way of her books, and who will speak with us about the continuing struggle to win a Green New Deal and our planet.

Thea Riofrancos is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Providence College, a member of DSA Ecosocialist’s working group Steering Committee, and co-author of A Planet to Win and Resource Radicals.

 

Readings:

Socialism or Barbarism — the fight continues!

“It’s Eco-Socialism or Death”: An Interview With Kali Akuno of Cooperation Jackson

JUST TRANSITION: A Framework for Change

Embrace Feminist Wisdom for a Green New Deal!
