Breakout 1: Learning Corner
NetHui is all about sparking conversation and discovering new perspectives. Everyone has something to learn and to teach, and our goal is to have everyone walk away from NetHui saying, ‘huh, I never thought of it that way before.’

This is a friendly space focused on learning, with helpful people who can offer explanations and ways to find out more. Whether you’re a newbie or a keen teacher, come here to get background on our panel conversations, to ask questions about the things you are interested in, and to hear from people who will be really nice about sharing their knowledge.

Breakout 2: Social Licence
Tools like automated facial recognition, digital contact tracing in a pandemic, and data-sharing across agencies can be really useful but also really creepy. How do we feel about our government using these new technologies? And are we having the conversations we need to figure that out?

You may have heard the term ‘social licence.’ This is the idea that successful policy and technology choices depend on a level of trust and buy-in from affected communities, which means taking steps to establish and build that trust.

But what does this look like in practice? How should the government earn your trust, and what do they need to do to keep it? Are things like the Algorithm Charter from StatsNZ the right approach?

Come to this room to talk about what New Zealanders want to see from the government around privacy, trust, the use of data, and more.

Session 1
We'll start with trying to define social licence, and what it means to you. Who uses it, why, and for what means? Are we all talking about the same thing, or are there better terms we could use?


Session 2
What are the mechanisms and approaches for influencing social licence? Where have you seen it be effective? What lessons can we learn from social licence in the non-tech realm that could be applied in tech?

Session 3
Let's put social licence to the test in the context of COVID-19 digital contact tracing apps: why would you use it or not? What information might change your mind?

Session 4
What principles might we recommend that governments have in mind when building social licence? How do governments decide if they should continue or stop doing things?

Breakout 3: Misinformation
This year there’s not just a pandemic, but an infodemic. COVID-19 has brought issues with mis- and dis-information online into sharp relief. Understanding how bad information travels online is difficult, and coming up with meaningful responses can feel even harder.

Come to this room to talk about misinformation and what communities need to help them respond and build trust in each other to share good, useful, and accurate information online.

Session 1: Mis/dis/mal: what is misinformation?
What is misinformation? What do the terms disinformation, and even malinformation mean? This first breakout session will explore the terms you hear about misinformation, including the motivations and information sharing practices being seen online. Some challenging discussion on topics, related to misinformation, may be included in this breakout stream, so we'll be agreeing our stream approach to manage that in this session too.


Session 2: Misinformation Past
When did this online misinformation problem start? How do offline misinformation issues get handled and can we apply those approaches to misinformation online? What can we learn from misinformation online on issues in the past: online information around climate change and vaccinations can be explored as two issues where information is important and misinformation can be seen.

Session 3: Misinformation Present
What does online misinformation look like now? How is misinformation a threat in Aotearoa New Zealand? What can we learn from the ongoing misinformation concerns around interference in democracy and social cohesion, as seen in the 2016 elections and in ongoing global election processes. What is this global infodemic surrounding Covid-19?

Session 4: Misinformation Future
What can we do about misinformation? How can we respond, collectively and cooperatively, to misinformation online in Aotearoa New Zealand? Could we build an action plan to address the Covid-19 infodemic and reduce the potential harms of pandemic related misinformation in Aotearoa New Zealand?

Zoom Breakout 3: Misinformation

11:15 NZDT

Breakout 4: Platforms & People
It’s easy to forget how diverse the Internet can be when just a few companies dominate the things we do online. When people talk about Internet issues in 2020, they are probably talking about a few popular social media platforms (each filled with screenshots of the others).

This room will explore the role of these big global services in the broader context of the Internet in 2020. Which services are we talking about, and why are they central to discussion of Internet issues in 2020?

There will be space to cover background questions, like why are these services so popular? How are they different from each other? Who do they serve? There will also be room for big-picture questions about the issues, like do these services have special responsibilities? If so, what are they? Are we stuck with the current services forever, or can we see alternatives?

The crowdsourced plan

Session 2: Monetization, data mining, is it true that "if you can't see the pricetag, you are the thing being sold?" And if you take yourself "off the market" what happens to the massive platforms

Session 3: Control on platforms. Hate speech, radicalization, war crimes and body policing -- platforms as law/morality

Session 4: What might a people-centred platform look like?


OTHER IDEAS we might discuss
  • What should/could we expect from platforms?
  • The effects of platform consolidation (FB owns the universe and Google picks up the rest)
  • Are platforms too big?
  • What about regulation?  Should governments regulate tech platforms, and if so how?  What would be the impact? 
  • A lot of these platforms come from one or two places -- is there space for a NuZeelund.co.nz platform?
  • And whatever you want to talk about
  • Many platforms report to shareholders -- are platforms public spaces and slash or corporate profit tools (public sphere anyone?)
  • Rise of misinformation and shared knowledge 
  • What about content moderation? How should this evolve?  How do we balance  free speech with security? 
  • Platforms as a space of information (aggregations, misinfo, echo chamber, fresh perspectives) and a space of connection
  • How will the COVID-19 pandemic and other global stresses change tech giants? And whatever you want to talk about
  • Hey whatever happened to net neutrality?
  • Big fish and big ponds - where are the guppies?
  • Have they got so big they have changed social spaces forever?
  • What are people to platforms? Users, fodder, consumers or what’s being sold?
  • The power of people on platforms, or the power of people for platforms?
  • And whatever you want to talk about

Breakout 5: JEDI
“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
~Dr. Lilla Watson, Indigenous Australian (Murri) visual artist, activist and academic

Inclusion - what does it mean, what does it mean to you, what does it mean to the company that you work for? Or the people you hang out with? We want to use this breakout space to discuss what we like to call the JEDI skills - using the Force to learn about Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. How they are all intertwined, and how there are many types of oppression - gender, ethnicity, sexuality, body size, age, caregiver status, neurodiversity, disability status, and more - We can discuss how they show up in our day-to-day lives and what it means to be an ally.

Session 1
We’ll start by introducing the concepts of JEDI and how it fits in an Aotearoa context. Defining the journey to allyship.


Session 2
Explore deeper the different types of oppression and how they intersect. We will do an online privilege exercise and discuss the concepts that surface as a result.

Session 3
Why is there a lack of diversity in the tech industry? We’ve all observed the blame on small hiring pools and a lack of properly skilled members from underrepresented groups. This is referred to as “the pipeline problem.” In this session we will dive into the pipeline and its leaks, ways we can take responsibility, and explore actions we can take to be a part of the solution.

Session 4
Look at the next steps in an allyship journey and some day-to-day actions that all of us can take away. This breakout will be run in a Lean Coffee style:  we will, as a rōpu (group), add to a virtual whiteboard (http://bit.ly/nethui20-inclusion) and vote on the topics we want to talk about collectively.

Breakout 7: Digital Equity (Tuesday Only)
The Internet is an increasingly crucial tool for being a part of society. COVID-19 showed us how valuable the Internet could be, and revealed the human impact being digitally excluded in 2020. 
Across New Zealand there are a lot of people working to make sure no one gets left behind. But there is a lot more work to be done, as so many New Zealanders are for a variety of reasons not able to access all the benefits of digital connectivity. 
Come to this room to talk about how to make sure all New Zealanders have the opportunity to make the most of the Internet, and contribute your ideas to achieve digital equity in New Zealand. 

Session 1
We'll start by talking about digital inclusion, what we know, what we don't know. 

Session 2
What are the opportunities for a community-led movement for digital inclusion? What’s already happening, and what do we need?

The Internet is not all doom and gloom. It’s also a vehicle for people to learn, connect, discover, and, of course, share pictures of cute animals.

In 2020, when many of us have seen more and more of our lives take place online, let’s spend some time thinking about how we can amplify the good. From wholesome gardening forums to aquarium penguins on adventures to reconnecting with distant cultures and families, come here to talk about things that spark joy.

This is a space for random, serendipitous conversation, or discussion ideas that pop up over the course of NetHui. Think of it as the hallway track - like meeting someone at the tea cart or the fountain outside.

If you want to talk about something that’s not on the agenda, or just catch up with a couple of friends face to (virtual) face, head here. The moderator can create extra breakout rooms for small groups and new discussion topics.

There is a collaborative notes document for you to use if you'd like, but this room does not have a notetaker or facilitator.

Get in touch with NetHui organisers in Slack if you want to get a barcamp on the programme in advance.

Whether you’re a newbie or a keen teacher, come here to get background on our panel conversations, to ask questions about the things you are interested in, and to hear from people who will be really nice about sharing their knowledge.

Zoom Breakout 1: Learning Corner

13:30 NZDT

Breakout 2: Social Licence
Tools like automated facial recognition, digital contact tracing in a pandemic, and data-sharing across agencies can be really useful but also really creepy. How do we feel about our government using these new technologies? And are we having the conversations we need to figure that out?

You may have heard the term ‘social licence.’ This is the idea that successful policy and technology choices depend on a level of trust and buy-in from affected communities, which means taking steps to establish and build that trust.

But what does this look like in practice? How should the government earn your trust, and what do they need to do to keep it? Are things like the Algorithm Charter from StatsNZ the right approach?

Come to this room to talk about what New Zealanders want to see from the government around privacy, trust, the use of data, and more.

Session 1 Tue
We'll start with trying to define social licence, and what it means to you. Who uses it, why, and for what means? Are we all talking about the same thing, or are there better terms we could use?

Session 2 Tue
What are the mechanisms and approaches for influencing social licence? Where have you seen it be effective? What lessons can we learn from social licence in the non-tech realm that could be applied in tech?

Session 3 Wed
Let's put social licence to the test in the context of COVID-19 digital contact tracing apps: why would you use it or not? What information might change your mind?


Session 4
What principles might we recommend that governments have in mind when building social licence? How do governments decide if they should continue or stop doing things?

Breakout 3: Misinformation
This year there’s not just a pandemic, but an infodemic. COVID-19 has brought issues with mis- and dis-information online into sharp relief. Understanding how bad information travels online is difficult, and coming up with meaningful responses can feel even harder.

Come to this room to talk about misinformation and what communities need to help them respond and build trust in each other to share good, useful, and accurate information online.

Session 1: Mis/dis/mal: what is misinformation?
What is misinformation? What do the terms disinformation, and even malinformation mean? This first breakout session will explore the terms you hear about misinformation, including the motivations and information sharing practices being seen online. Some challenging discussion on topics, related to misinformation, may be included in this breakout stream, so we'll be agreeing our stream approach to manage that in this session too.

Session 2: Misinformation Past
When did this online misinformation problem start? How do offline misinformation issues get handled and can we apply those approaches to misinformation online? What can we learn from misinformation online on issues in the past: online information around climate change and vaccinations can be explored as two issues where information is important and misinformation can be seen.

Session 3: Misinformation Present
What does online misinformation look like now? How is misinformation a threat in Aotearoa New Zealand? What can we learn from the ongoing misinformation concerns around interference in democracy and social cohesion, as seen in the 2016 elections and in ongoing global election processes. What is this global infodemic surrounding Covid-19?


Session 4: Misinformation Future
What can we do about misinformation? How can we respond, collectively and cooperatively, to misinformation online in Aotearoa New Zealand? Could we build an action plan to address the Covid-19 infodemic and reduce the potential harms of pandemic related misinformation in Aotearoa New Zealand?

Zoom Breakout 3: Misinformation

13:30 NZDT

Breakout 4: Platforms & People
It’s easy to forget how diverse the Internet can be when just a few companies dominate the things we do online. When people talk about Internet issues in 2020, they are probably talking about a few popular social media platforms (each filled with screenshots of the others).

This room will explore the role of these big global services in the broader context of the Internet in 2020. Which services are we talking about, and why are they central to discussion of Internet issues in 2020?

There will be space to cover background questions, like why are these services so popular? How are they different from each other? Who do they serve? There will also be room for big-picture questions about the issues, like do these services have special responsibilities? If so, what are they? Are we stuck with the current services forever, or can we see alternatives?

The crowdsourced plan

Session 2: Monetization, data mining, is it true that "if you can't see the pricetag, you are the thing being sold?" And if you take yourself "off the market" what happens to the massive platforms

Session 3: Control on platforms. Hate speech, radicalization, war crimes and body policing -- platforms as law/morality

Session 4: What might a people-centred platform look like?


OTHER IDEAS we might discuss
  • What should/could we expect from platforms?
  • The effects of platform consolidation (FB owns the universe and Google picks up the rest)
  • Are platforms too big?
  • What about regulation?  Should governments regulate tech platforms, and if so how?  What would be the impact? 
  • A lot of these platforms come from one or two places -- is there space for a NuZeelund.co.nz platform?
  • And whatever you want to talk about
  • Many platforms report to shareholders -- are platforms public spaces and slash or corporate profit tools (public sphere anyone?)
  • Rise of misinformation and shared knowledge 
  • What about content moderation? How should this evolve?  How do we balance  free speech with security? 
  • Platforms as a space of information (aggregations, misinfo, echo chamber, fresh perspectives) and a space of connection
  • How will the COVID-19 pandemic and other global stresses change tech giants? And whatever you want to talk about
  • Hey whatever happened to net neutrality?
  • Big fish and big ponds - where are the guppies?
  • Have they got so big they have changed social spaces forever?
  • What are people to platforms? Users, fodder, consumers or what’s being sold?
  • The power of people on platforms, or the power of people for platforms?
  • And whatever you want to talk about

Breakout 5: JEDI
“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
~Dr. Lilla Watson, Indigenous Australian (Murri) visual artist, activist and academic

Inclusion - what does it mean, what does it mean to you, what does it mean to the company that you work for? Or the people you hang out with? We want to use this breakout space to discuss what we like to call the JEDI skills - using the Force to learn about Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. How they are all intertwined, and how there are many types of oppression - gender, ethnicity, sexuality, body size, age, caregiver status, neurodiversity, disability status, and more - We can discuss how they show up in our day-to-day lives and what it means to be an ally.

Session 1
We’ll start by introducing the concepts of JEDI and how it fits in an Aotearoa context. Defining the journey to allyship.

Session 2
Explore deeper the different types of oppression and how they intersect. We will do an online privilege exercise and discuss the concepts that surface as a result.

Session 3
Why is there a lack of diversity in the tech industry? We’ve all observed the blame on small hiring pools and a lack of properly skilled members from underrepresented groups. This is referred to as “the pipeline problem.” In this session we will dive into the pipeline and its leaks, ways we can take responsibility, and explore actions we can take to be a part of the solution.


Session 4 Wed
Look at the next steps in an allyship journey and some day-to-day actions that all of us can take away. This breakout will be run in a Lean Coffee style: we will, as a rōpu (group), add to a virtual whiteboard (http://bit.ly/nethui20-inclusion) and vote on the topics we want to talk about collectively.

Breakout 7: Encryption (Wed only)
The Five Eyes governments, including New Zealand, have signed on to a joint policy statement on encryption. They say strong encryption is vital for security online — but also that the need to enforce laws means governments must be able to access information sent through encrypted online services. We’ll be talking about this, asking what does it mean? Is it even possible? What would this look like, and what can interested people do about it?
