TA3M: The Internet Society and an Open Internet

RSVP optional.

You're invited to the March Techno-Activism Third Mondays (TA3M) in Durham! TA3M is an informal meetup designed to connect software creators and activists who are interested in censorship, surveillance, and open technology. The event takes place in different cities around the globe every third Monday of the month.

WHAT: TA3M in Durham [1,2]
WHEN: Monday March 17th from 7pm 'till 9pm
WHERE: SplatSpace [3]
TOPIC: The Internet Society and an Open Internet

This month's presentation is on The Internet Society (ISOC) [4,5], an organization founded by Vint Cerf with the mission to "to promote the open development, evolution and use of the Internet for the benefit of all people throughout the world." We will be discussing what this means practically, and what kinds of activities the Internet Society is involved in. There will be a discussion of ISOC activism in the areas of internet security, net neutrality and other social/political current issues. We will end with a discussion of how to get involved in the political side of fighting for a free and open internet.

Our presenter is Lynden Price, who has been a member of the Internet Society for 3 years, and has been involved in internet activism for over 10 years.

This is meant to be an open forum, where anyone is free to share. Got a lightning talk? We'd love to hear it! Or, just come join in the discussion.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
