If you're in the California Bay Area, join us in San Francisco's PariSoMa on Monday, August 3, from 7pm - 9pm as we discuss the lessons of Iran and other global protests, what's happening now, and how to make the digital media we create serve netizens in authoritarian regimes.
Panelists include Cyrus Farivar, journalist author of the forthcoming "The Internet of Elsewhere", Net activist in the Iranian protests Austin Heap, and EFF's International Outreach Coordinator, Danny O'Brien.
