What will happen in your session?

Lightbeam is a key tool for Mozilla to educate the public about privacy. Using interactive visualisations, Lightbeam’s main goal is to show web tracking, aka, show the first and third party sites you interact with on the Web.
In this session, the participants will get to interact with the trackers in the VR world thus creating an immersive Lightbeam experience. With animated transitions and well-crafted interfaces, this unique Lightbeam experience can make exploring trackers feel more like playing a game. This can be a great medium for engaging an audience who might not otherwise care about web privacy & security.

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

The ultimate goal of this session is for the audience to know and understand about web tracking.
While web tracking isn’t 100% evil (cookies can help your favourite websites stay in business), its workings remain poorly understood. Your personal information is valuable and it’s your right to know what data is being collected about you. The trick is in taking this data and shacking up with third parties to help them come up with new ways to convince you to spend money and give up more information. It would be fine if you decided to give up this information for a tangible benefit, but no one is including you in the decision.

If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.

VR devices - Vive, Oculus etc.
At this point, I am not sure about this part :)

Time needed

All weekend, as an installation, exhibit or drop-in session

@princiya interesting session - Would you still be able to attend if we was not able to award you a travel and accomodation stipend? I might be able to lend you the VR equipement in the Youth Zone but unfortunately I cant do a Stipend for you.

@princiya your proposal has advanced through to the next phase of selection by the Privacy and Security wrangler team!! Yay!

The matter of stipends is something we need clarity on though. Could you please reach out to your team manager ASAP to see if they are able to cover your travel and accommodation needs?
