How we stopped #SOPA

RSVP at:

http://www.thoughtworks.com/events/thoughtworks-new-york-and-aaron-swartz

Aaron Swartz was a key figure in the successful fight against SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act). On Thursday (August 30) he will tell how a tiny number of online activists managed to defeat a bill pushed by the entertainment industry, which had spent hundreds of millions of dollars per year trying to get it passed and believed its survival was threatened if it wasn’t passed.

He has presented this talk in Washington, DC (May 21) and New York (Aug 16) with overwhelming response. Join us to meet him in person in the Thoughtworks Atlanta office for an engaging and thought-provoking talk.
