If you have a question about this talk, please contact Maurice Chiodo.

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. Computers for voting make election results untrustworthy. Other threats come from use of web services. Finally, we have no assured right to make any particular use of the Internet; every activity is precarious, permitted only as long as companies are willing to cooperate with our doing it.

[This event will begin with a pre-recorded video by Richard Stallman, followed by a live videolink Q+A session with him.]
