Pool Party, Tiki hut, and Cocktails

By popular demand, this Meetup is scheduled for a Thursday night, rather than our typical Wednesday. What isn't changing is our fantastic pool-side location at the Indulge Island Grill in the heart of the CBD. Come by after work, leave the tie and the jacket in the car, and enjoy a cocktail from the tiki hut.

Leading the discussion this month is Abid Hussain, a small business attorney who is moving his practice from Dallas to New Orleans (he married a NOLA girl, and you know what they say about NOLA girls).

Abid uses plenty of technology to run his solo practice, and has been in the cloud for several years now. Given all the recent press regarding the NSA and Eric Snowden, Abid will lead a discussion on internet privacy and digital encryption. As more and more attorneys move into the cloud, we need to be aware of the associated risks and the tools that can help us mitigate that risk.

      Your talk was exceptional and I LOVED the discussion that it provoked. Also your personal stories were fascinating, and compelling. Clearly, this is an area we should pay more attention to. Thanks for bringing needed clarity to a shadowy topic.

      Yeh - I like the finals. My favorite is Charles Barkley's commentary when it's early and still on TNT. Exclusivity provisions in Charles Barkley's contracts should be void for public policy. See how I turned that into something totally nerdy... I did. I actually have a clerk event tonight though - so will miss the tiki torch pool extravaganza. Bummed - but, see yall next time.

    Public keys, private keys, cryptography, spies, espionage, NSA, all served shaken not stirred, with a license to chill!

    If you have a visible cheesey tattoo, do you get free drinks? If so, does it have to be real? Or can I do a little somethin' in Sharpie the day of? https://plus.google.com/10834724...­ - Just kidding, nice Indulge people...
