Doctorow & Stross: Resisting the All-Seeing Eye

posted @ 3/27/2009 02:49:00 PM PT 

"This event is your anti-surveillance 101." Charlie Stross and Cory Doctorow are giving a benefit talk entitled "Resisting the All-Seeing Eye" for the Open Rights Group on May 1, 2009, in London.

From technologies like PGP and Tor to arguments that will convince people — friends and family as well as media and politicians — to watch out for their digital rights. Doctorow and Stross will share how and why to control your data. The event will be moderated by Ian Brown — academic, activist, and Blogzilla.

The entry price is either joining Open Rights Group — by handing door staff a completed form — or making a one-time £10 donation at the door. Register for tickets here. Drinks will be available, as is The Three Kings — a local pub — to continue the debate.
