A mixture of local tech and global activism this month!

We'll be hearing a quick update from the SANDSTORM.IO team, a local start-up
that's building a usable and secure way to install popular server apps on a
personal, private machine.

And we'll be chatting with TA3M-SF favorite MELISSA CHAN, Al Jazeera's
correspondent in Beijing, the Middle East, and most lately investigating what
happened with the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong. We'll talk about what it's
like to be targeted for digital surveillance, what on-the-ground activists use
to protect themselves, and what a modern grassroots activist movement looks
like.

Date: Monday, May 18
Time: 6:00pm-7:15pm
Location: EFF offices, 815 Eddy Street, San Francisco
