Reason is proud to be a media sponsor of the 15th annual Computers, Freedom & Privacy Conference, an unparalleled gathering of hackers, programmers, and supporters of civil liberties, which takes place April 12-15 in Seattle.
This year's theme is "Panopticon":
Over time, and particularly recently, surveillance of ordinary citizens has increased to dramatic levels. Not only are governments watching more aspects of their citizens, lives, but those in the private sector are increasing surveillance of people as well. Often lost in the race to "increase intelligence" are discussions about different approaches to address problems like the threat of terrorism that are equally or more effective, but do not involve extensive and constant surveillance.
Discounted registration and special conference rates are good through March 21. Go here for details.
