IT is Your Data, Your Life: Online and Real-World

February 16 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Folks,

We have an informal mixed bag of general bits for this month’s ‘talk’ with any and/or all of:

And there will be no doubt our usual mix of discussion of anything and everything Linux and FLOSS and everything else!

 

All at the Angel Microbrewery. (They may even have another of their homebrew ready for us to try.)

Nominal 7:30pm start. Some of us will be there earlier for food.

 

A warm welcome to our newcomers.

All welcome 🙂

Cheers,
Martin

    Aptly and a current hot topic in the media:

    BBC News: Should you take your phone to the United States?

    “The next time you plan to cross a border, leave your phone at home.”…

    … Larson sees this as a very dangerous precedent: “What we’re seeing now is that anyone can be grabbed on their way through customs and forced to hand over the full contents of their digital life.”

    We also know that the new homeland security secretary, John Kelly, has talked of requiring visa applicants to hand over passwords to their social media accounts…

    …perhaps I’d better take what I believe is known as a “burner” phone the next time I fly across the Atlantic.

     

    Are we now truly in 1984?…
