Join staffers at the Electronic Frontier Foundation—the nation's premier digital civil liberties group fighting for freedom and privacy in the computer age—for a candid chat about how the law is racing to catch up with technological change. Then meet representatives from Electronic Frontier Alliance allied community and campus organizations from across the country. These technologists and advocates are working within their communities to educate and empower their neighbors in the fight for data privacy and digital rights.
This discussion will include updates on current EFF issues such as the government's effort to undermine encryption (and add backdoors), the fight for network neutrality, discussion of our technology projects to spread encryption across the Web and emails, updates on cases and legislation affecting security research, and much more. Half the session will be given over to question-and-answer, so it's your chance to ask EFF questions about the law, surveillance and technology issues that are important to you.
Meetup Location: Fireside Lounge at Planet Hollywood
