A Webinar with Silk.co on the Arab Digital Rights Datasets

Update August 10, 2016: Silk was purchased by Palantir and is no longer being maintained. We will be updating the dataset and porting over the data to a new online outpost in mid to late 2017.

In this webinar, I spoke with Jurian Bass and Sarah Aoun, from Silk.co, a platform where people can easily upload and visualize their datasets. I talk about how SMEX created the open Arab Digital Rights Dataset and then used Silk.co as a publishing platform to create smex.silk.co, a multimedia research portal that “illuminates trends in how Arab governments are limiting digital rights, such as free expression and privacy online.”
