Campus event about Internet freedom: Thursday

Are you interested in protecting your privacy online? If so, you might enjoy this event.

The UF Libertarians, a student organization, will meet this Thursday, Sept. 26, at 7 p.m. in Matherly Hall, room 112.

The general topic is Internet freedom. One of the organizers wrote me and said: “We will be giving a brief, non-technical introduction to encryption and will then discuss topics including the Pirate Bay, Tor browser, Bitcoin/Crypto-Currency, the Silk Road, Edward Snowden, and WikiLeaks before wrapping up with some advice on how to make yourself safer against state violations of privacy and peace.”

They will also be tabling for the event at Turlington from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday. Students can stop by to get free stickers, buttons, Bitcoin brochures, and lots of informational items from the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
