At TGIF today, the security students hosted with the theme "Would you rather..." Attendees could brainstorm and submit questions that had a "would you rather..." scenario with two choices. The most popular submission was given an award.Makeability Lab students Dhruv Jain and Venkatesh Potluri submitted: "Would you rather have a camera look at you or a microphone listen to you all the time?" This ended up being a very provocative question with the TGIF attendees having mixed opinions.
