Bruce Schneier is coming to London in December and will be doing a
talk for ORG. Hope to meet more of the discuss crowd at the event.


We live in a unique time in our technological history. The cameras are
ubiquitous, but we can still see them. ID checks are everywhere, but
we still know they're going on. Computers inherently generate personal
data, and everyone leaves an audit trail everywhere they go.

Bruce Schneier, internationally-renowned cryptographer, technologist
and author, will share his vision of current and future technologies'
effects on privacy. Schneier rejects the traditional "security vs.
privacy" dichotomy in favor of a more subtle and realistic one.

"Data is the pollution problem of the information age and we need to
start thinking about how to deal with it."

When? Doors open at 1830, Friday 4 December 2009
Where? St Albans Centre, 18 Brooke St, London, London EC1N 7RD (More 
info here)

Jim Killock, Executive Director of Open Rights Group, will chair the
audience Q&A. Drinks will be available at the venue before and after
the talk. An audio and video recording will be made available after
the event.
