Join OWASP OC for a first-ever movie night! Please RSVP now, as we have limited capacity in our private theater.
We'll be viewing and discussing the "The Internet's Own Boy," a documentary that explores the disconnect between legislators and technologists, and how serious such disconnects can be. As security professionals and technologically-savvy citizens, this disconnect should be of core concern to us, as it can affect our lives and freedom.
The documentary focuses on Aaron Swartz, co-founder of Reddit and a key player in preventing SOPA's passage. Aaron was arrested and faced several felony charges for automating the download of academic journals that he had legal access to. He committed suicide in January, 2013; many have said he did so due to the stresses of the charges against him.
We've been able to book a small private theater at The Village, and will have beer/soda/pizza.
The evening will start at 6:30pm with pizza/drinks/networking on the patio outside the theater, and then the movie will start at 7:00pm. After the movie (around 8:45), we'll have a discussion about the film and what can be done to prevent future tragedies such as this.
Map to the location is below. Parking is available on both Spectrum and Prism streets. Also, there are visitor parking spaces in the underground garages at both ends of Prism.
