The eighth episode of Ars Technica Live is coming up next tomorrow, November 16, in Oakland, California, at Longitude! Join Ars Technica editors Dan Goodin and Annalee Newitz with guest Morgan Marquis-Boire for a conversation about infosec, surveillance, and digital authoritarianism.
Marquis-Boire is a New Zealand-born hacker, security researcher, and journalist. He is the director of security for First Look Media and a contributing writer for The Intercept. Prior to this, he worked at Google. Marquis-Boire is a Senior Researcher at the Citizen Lab, University of Toronto, focusing on state-sponsored hacking and the global surveillance industry. He currently serves as a special advisor to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and as an advisor to the Freedom of the Press Foundation and Amnesty International.
Filmed before a live audience at Oakland tiki bar Longitude, each episode of Ars Technica Live is a speculative, informal conversation between Ars Technica hosts and an invited guest.
The audience, drawn from Ars Technica’s readers, is also invited to join the conversation and ask questions.
These aren’t soundbyte setups; they are deep cuts from the frontiers of research and creativity.
Doors are at 7pm, and the live filming is from 7:30 to 8:20-ish pm (be sure to get there early if you want a seat). You can stick around afterward for informal discussion at the bar, along with delicious tiki drinks and snacks.
Can’t make it out to Oakland? Never fear! Episodes will be posted to Ars Technica the week after the live events.
Yes, we have a Facebook invite for this event.
See you tomorrow, Bay Area Arsians!
