|Where||New York, NY|
There are many threats to freedom in the digital society. They include massive surveillance, censorship, digital handcuffs, nonfree software that controls users, and the War on Sharing. Other threats come from use of web services. Finally, we have no positive right to do anything in the Internet; every activity is precarious, and can continue only as long as companies are willing to cooperate with it.
This speech by Richard Stallman will be nontechnical, admission is free, and the public is encouraged to attend.
Registration, which can be done anonymously, is not required, but is really appreciated; it will help us ensure we can accommodate all the people who wish to attend.
