EVENT

Discussion Hosted by EFF-Austin

May 14, 2018 - 7:00pm
Austin, TX

A local digital rights community group in the Electronic Frontier Alliance (not EFF) will host this event:

The Tyranny of Contract

This month's speaker will be Christopher Brown. His novel Rule of Capture, the beginning of a series of speculative legal thrillers about a criminal defense lawyer in an authoritarian USA, is forthcoming from Harper in 2019.

Christopher is going to be speaking about the tyranny of contract, about how click-wrap agreements and NDAs have subverted the emancipatory potential of the Internet, indentured its creators, and enabled our current dystopias—and how new technologies may help us build a new paradigm.

When:

Monday, May 14, 2018

7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Where:

Capital Factory

701 Brazos St.
