UPDATE: Event postponed due to Global Cooling and subsequent Regional Ice Tsunami. Rescheduling info coming soon.
Heads up everyone.
Since the topic is "The Surveillance State" the Surveillance State already knows more about this than you do.
Still, grab your calendars, planners, organizers, To-Do lists, BlackBerrys, smartphone aps, Personal Senior Administrative Secretarial Assistants or magnetic refrigerator grocery pads and make a note:
The event takes place on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 6:30 PM in Munson's Room next to the Ace's Lounge lobby bar in the Hyatt Regency DFW Hotel (inside DFW Airport) located at 2334 North International Parkway, Dallas, Texas.
So far the panel will be empaneled with the following panelists:
Gregory Foster is President of EFF-Austin which, although it's similar to but not formally connected with its national Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) namesake, nonetheless professes in its Mission Statement "We promote the right of all citizens to communicate and share information without unreasonable constraint. We also advocate the fundamental right to explore, tinker, create, and innovate along the frontier of emerging technologies."
Scott Henson is the Coalition volunteer at the Texas Electronic Privacy Coalition, an alliance of such groups as EFF-Austin, Texans for Accountable Government, the ACLU of Texas and the Texas Civil Rights Project who are "determined to reinstate 4th Amendment rights for the smart-phone age" which to them means that "government needs a warrant based on probable cause to read a person’s digital content or track a person’s location, regardless of where the data is stored or in what format."
Larry Talley is a familiar face to many North Texas libertarians. Talley is a Board member and Strategist for DFW NORML (the Dallas/Fort Worth chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), a speaker for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) among other organizations, and a decorated Gulf War Navy Veteran. In its long drive to end cannabis prohibition many marijuana users have gained firsthand, and unwanted, experience with government surveillance.
