October 1 Freedom Content

Information. It's ephemeral. Does its value come from its secrecy or from being well known? From being used or not being used? And in an Internet world, how does information flow and at whose behest? That's the discussion today as part of Banned Books Week at the library. "Leaks, Tweets and Deletes: Intellectual Freedom in a Digital World Agora", is a panel discussion by David Wolman, Jeff Golden and Peter Laufer.

The panel will discuss the role of the Internet, Facebook and Twitter in the Arab Spring, media censorship and its discontents around the world, and the saga of Wikileaks.

Details. At the Multnomah County Central Library Meeting Room 801 S.W. 10th 2PM-3:30 Free

Is fashion art? Of course, done well. Fashion is also a Portland creative vector, gathering nutrients from the apparel, footwear and craft ecosystems and contributing back into other creative ecosystems. Content is a one night show of stylist-created art installations in rooms of the Ace Hotel. Each room is dedicated to clothing and accessories from a Portland clothing or accessories designer. All great fun. Content at the Ace Hotel
