After taking office in January, the Trump administration began systematically removing scientific and environmental data from government websites. Sociology professor Lindsey Dillon is helping to run a data-rescue project called the Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI), whose aim is to preserve this data and make it accessible to the public. At Ars Technica Live #14, we’ll be hosting a public discussion with Dillon about her work.
Join Ars Technica editors Annalee Newitz and Joe Mullin at Eli’s Mile High Club for the live taping of our monthly discussion series. Dillon will talk to us about EDGI, as well as her research on environmental racism in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Ars Live takes place on the third Wednesday of every month at Eli’s Mile High Club in Oakland (3629 MLK Way). They have the best tater tots you’ve ever eaten. So crispy!
Doors open at 7pm, and the live filming is from 7:30 to 8:20-ish (be sure to get there early if you want a seat). Stick around afterward for informal discussion, beer, and snacks. Can’t make it out to Oakland? Never fear! Episodes will be posted to Ars Technica the week after the live events.
