Weaponized Social in SF | 2015

Event Date(s): 
May 16, 2015 to May 17, 2015

In February 2015, we brought together people in New York City to engage in conversations and workshops about social interactions and conflict resolution in online spaces.

Referred to as Weaponized Social, this event aimed to rethink the social scripts (i.e., learned patterns of interaction) that shape the online realm.

That spring, we brought these conversations to Weaponized Social in San Francisco on May 16 and 17. This event supported collaboration between sociologists, data scientists, peace builders, software developers, activists, and anyone passionate about supporting a healthier online ecosystem. 

You can learn more about 'social scripts' and their potential for harm (and change) in our blog.

Whats was on the agenda?

This event contained interactive workshops and dialogues, and like all Aspiration events, the agenda was co-created with participants before and during the event.

Special thanks to Meredith (@maradydd) Sam (@metasj), and the Berkman Center (@berkmancenter) for help in parsing all these ideas.
