Bay Area: Join us tonight, 6/21, to discuss the US gov’t scientific data purge

June 21st, 2017

Enlarge / UC Santa Cruz professor Lindsey Dillon will join us at Ars Live.

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 tonight 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!
