A conversation between Edward Snowden and Christopher Soghoian, the principal technologist of the American Civil Liberties Union. The conversation will be focused on the impact of the NSA’s spying efforts on the technology community, and the ways in which technology can help to protect us from mass surveillance. Hear directly from Snowden about his beliefs on what the tech community can and must do to secure the private data of the billions of people who rely on the tools and services that we build. This session will be moderated by Ben Wizner, who is director of the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy & Technology Project and Edward Snowden’s legal advisor. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions.

IMDB’S Bottom 100: #13 … Is it the subtle Beach Boys references or the coffee drinking horse that make this a classic, maybe it’s characters such as Shoeboogey, the atrocious acting, the hilarious dialogue, the voice dubbing, baffling long character shots, the blade runner rip-off opening credits, the cliché comic robot, the fact that the movie is so confused as to what it is while taking itself seriously, or possibly it’s just that it’s so God-Awfully Brilliant !!!! Decide for yourself, Pure Genius!

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Rave new world. A documentary on early rave culture and MDMA.
The test subject they dose with MDMA about 11 minutes in is fucking hilarious.
