Elahi & Schneier: Tracking Transience discussion 2/18


Don't miss what is certain to be a thought provoking conversation on the critical, often conflicting topics of privacy and security this Thursday, Feb.18 at 5:30 pm in Auditorium 150.  The participants are artist Hasan Elahi who will discuss “Tracking Transience: The Orwell Project,” an online self-monitoring system that he developed after coming under the scrutiny of the FBI, post 9/11, and Bruce Schneier, an internationally renowned security technologist and author, dubbed a "security guru" by The Economist magazine. 

To find out more about Elahi and Schneier before Thursday, visit the Library where you can read selected interviews and articles about them.  We have just added Bruce Schneier's book, Beyond Fear: Thinking Sensibly About Security in an Uncertain World to the collection.   All these items are on display in the main reading room.
