Motherboard reports on the opening of The Glass Room, an exhibit in Manhattan’s SoHo district focused on digital privacy and surveillance. The Glass Room was created by Mozilla and Berlin-based activist group Tactical Technology Collective. The exhibit features surveillance tools used by law enforcement agencies and private corporations, and art exhibits, including a book containing LinkedIn passwords from its 2012 data breach. Outside, antennas point outward from The Glass Room’s entrance to record the MAC addresses of all the Wi-Fi enabled devices in the area. When patrons go inside the exhibit, they can see a map of all the devices on a huge screen within the building. “Really, this is a moment where we need to get everybody as citizens thinking about the health of the internet,” said executive director of Mozilla’s nonprofit arm, Mark Surman.
