 Subject: [Computers_and_society_announcements] Eben Moglen, author of GPL 3 at 
Courant this Friday night 7:00 - 9:00

 Eben Moglen, Professor of Law and Legal History at Columbia University, 
 and founder, Director-Counsel and Chairman of the Software Freedom Law 
 Center, will speak about Freedom in the Cloud: Software Freedom, Privacy 
 and Security for Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing on Friday, February 5, 2010, 
 7-9 pm. This event will be webcast live.

 Abstract:
 Everyone wants a piece of you these days: Google, Facebook, Flickr, Apple, 
 AT&T, Bing. Theyll give you free e-mail, free photo storage, free web 
 hosting, even a free date. They just want to listen in. And you cant wait 
 to let them. Theyll store your stuff, theyll organize your photos, theyll 
 keep track of your appointments, as long as they can watch. It all goes 
 into the Cloud.

 How we got here is quite a scary story. But nowhere near as scary as 
 getting out again. Eben Moglen, a Professor of Law and Legal History at 
 Columbia University and the founding director of the Software Freedom Law 
 Center, warned you about privacy and the cloud before. At a public meeting 
 of the Internet Society of New York on February 5, Moglen will ask you to 
 consider how much worse things have become since then and explain what you 
 can do to reclaim your freedom in the era of Web 2.0.
