How to Maintain Your Secret Identity Online
There was a time when the internet promised anonymous communication – an ability to interact with the world around you and with people worlds away without the limitations of prejudice or troublesome accountability of identification.

We know the value of a secret identity – but is such a thing even possible anymore? What’s actually being collected as you browse, and what can you do about it? Andy Kahl, Ghostery’s Senior Director of Transparency, will walk you through the state of quantified identity and share some tools for maintaining your privacy.

Vulture Presents Carol Corps and Beyond: The Future of Female Fandom
Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and Batgirl have sparked an explosion of enthusiasm and visibility for women in comics. These female leads have been present since the dawn of comics, so why is their popularity only seeing a rise now?

Most importantly, we must keep this momentum going and not let this be just a flash in the pan!

Joined by Artist friends and other Special Guests, Caldwell and Nathan will lead a comedy-drawing experience including games and audience participation. The Artists will endure a series of escalating, absurd (and sometimes painful) physical challenges and extreme circumstances while they collaborate to create original pieces of art based on audience input. Don’t miss the New York Comic Con debut of Drawfee, and join them as they take your dumb suggestions—such as “Celebrity Sharks,” “Sassy Palm Trees” and “Political Unicorns” — and make even dumber drawings!
