[tab title=”Details”]Government spying and surveillance — fueled in part by America’s overreliance on technology — has reached an all-time high in recent years, and according to the American Civil Liberties Union, this infringes on rights like freedom of speech. Chris Soghoian, with the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project, will describe the dark world of Big Brother’s technological spying, including aerial drones, license plate scanners, and Stingrays, and explain how these new technologies have given the government more control than ever before. He’ll also discuss measures to limit this power, protecting basic freedoms in the process.
