Freedom and privacy on the Electronic Frontier are facing their toughest challenges since the birth of the Web. Bulk surveillance programs continue expanding, our secure networks are being systematically compromised, and some state leaders are calling to undermine encryption. How will we effectively preserve our digital rights going forward?

EFF (http://www.eff.org) and EFF-Austin (http://www.effaustin.org) are convening a special gathering of digital rights supporters for a candid discussion of our digital future.

Join us for an evening of stimulating conversation:

• NSA whistleblower and SXSW keynote speaker William “Bill” Binney will share from his personal experience

• 5-Minute Lightning Talks, presented by attendees who are addressing this challenge in their current projects

• Free-form group conversations seeded from our core topics

Complimentary beer, wine and light catering will be provided.

NOTE: We have a limited number of spots available for EFF-Austin members. Please be courteous and only RSVP if you can definitely attend.
