“NightLife” at California Academy of Sciences | Thursdays
This week at NightLife, we’re exploring the many sides of the internet: the good, the bad, and the meme-worthy.
Catch a screening of the internet’s funniest, most dramatic, and awww!-worthy cat videos in CatVideoFest, the offline celebration of online cat videos.
Step inside the “dark web” with Sonic Internet for a demonstration of total internal reflection, the phenomenon by which data is transmitted as light through tiny glass tubes.
To explore the other “dark web,” join cybersecurity expert Betsy Cooper, founding Director of the Aspen Tech Policy Hub and former attorney at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, for a talk investigating the complex world of computers, networks, and data.
Flex your creativity with an analog meme-making station by SCRAP and dig into the vast history of the internet with the Internet Archive, a nonprofit organization building the world’s largest library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form.
