Techdirt Podcast Episode 255: Threatcasting The Election
from the predicting-disinformation dept
Late last year, we designed Threatcast 2020: a brainstorming game for groups of people trying to predict the new, innovative, and worrying forms of misinformation and disinformation that might come into play in the upcoming election. We ran a few in-person sessions before the pandemic hit and ended our plans for more, then last month we moved it online with the help of the fun interactive event platform Remo. We’ve learned a lot and hit on some disturbingly real-feeling predictions throughout these events, so this week we’re joined by our partner in designing the game — Randy Lubin of Leveraged Play — to discuss our experiences “threatcasting” the 2020 election. We really want to run more of these online events for new groups, so if that’s something you or your organization might be interested in, please get in touch!
