This month CyPurr will discuss Dark Designs, and how web companies trick users and undermine consent. From fake "download buttons" to vague terms of service, we will review what to look out for online. Afterwards, we'll review tools for you web browser and describe how "mesh" internet works. Come on by to meet n' greet with other folks and get some help with your tech needs! Snacks and children are welcome. Open to beginner and seasoned techies alike!
