Bay Area (Hacker's Association|Security Enthusiasts) Meeting!
2nd Sunday of every month, 2pm, at Noisebridge, in the main area. It lasts until it's over.
It's for people interested in security, not the more general "make stuff" kind of hacking.
Date of Meeting:
2pm (1400), Sun 11 Aug 2013
Secure Communications, Privacy, Counter-Surveillance
This month we present:
You've read about PRISM, XKeyscore and others. If you suspected that governments were spying for years, you're no longer that crazy person. What's going on? What can you do about it? Does it really even matter? The discussion will be interactive.
