Join our symposium on privacy-preserving measurement!

Quick introduction: My name is Nathan Freitas, and I lead the Guardian Project, an open-source mobile security and privacy team. We are big fans of Matomo and are working some projects that use and build upon it. If you have some specific needs, thoughts, ideas and vision around privacy and security, then read on below, and join us throughout the month of May. Best to you all.


I am inviting you, by way of the attached magical ticket, to an online, month long happening like you have never experienced before. Behold, the !!! Clean Insights Symposium Extraordinaire !!!, an online three track circus of death defying acts attempting to navigate and balance between the worlds of user analytics and personal privacy. You will be amazed, you will be inspired, you will have questions, and ultimately you will gain insight, into the potential, the perils and the highly probable outcomes of the great feats that the Clean Insights team will perform in the coming year.

It must be seen to be believed, and can only occur WITH YOUR HELP!

So come along, and join the EXTRAORDINAIRE ----> Symposium Extraordinaire - Clean Insights

Be Part of the Symposium Extraordinaire!

We are living in a time like never before. A time no one has seen, experienced or gone through. There are no experts, no tested measures of success, no right or wrong way to do this. Now is the perfect time for embracing novel ideas!

Join us throughout the month of May as we embark on a new collaborative experience to develop, design and discuss ethical analytics and privacy-preserving measurement! Now is the time to consider new ways to measure your applications and services to gain valuable insights, while not violating the trust and dignity of those you seek to benefit.

This is a chance to collectively enhance the practice of measurement and analytics, by approaching the process in a new way!
