"I had never met this man, but he knew where I lived, where I studied, where I used to hang out."

At this year's ViSmedia conference, UiB student Maren Myrseth shared her perspective about living in a world where surveillance is everywhere: We're constantly watching and being watched.

Media City Bergen published an article about this event, placing Myrseth's speak at center stage.

"Stranger danger is very much real, it just shows up in the digital world these days", Myrseth said.

Myrseth is a bachelor's student of Journalism at University of Bergen, where the conference took place on March 20. She was one out of the many researchers and journalists who came to the conference from far and near. Researchers arrived to share their research or perspectives on issues concerning digital surveillance in  different forms.
