Techno Activism Third Mondays -- May

May 19, 2014 - 6:00pm
EFF HQ, 815 Eddy St, San Francisco

June 5th, 2013 was the day that began the Year of Edward Snowden. On the anniversary of the release of the first NSA documents, we'll be taking a look at what we've learned, and what we still don't know – with an emphasis on teaching others how to protect themselves.

After the latest revelations showed that Snowden tried to teach Glenn Greenwald how to use PGP by video, and that Greenwald used Cryptocat in Hong Kong, we'll be echoing Matthew Green's question: “So has Snowden succeeded? Have developers 'created better encryption' since his leaks?”

We will also be joined by artist and activist Niki Korth to discuss the case of Bassel (Khartabil) Safadi, a Syrian computer engineer and Creative Commons advocate who will be celebrating his upcoming 33rd birthday in prison. Read more about Bassel here.

Join us for discussion, networking, snacks and cool iced drinks at EFF.
