It is computing not as we knew it. Like lemmings rushing to the edge of the cliff, the adoption of adopting Social Media, online computing, remote computing, digital communication, online friends and virtual worlds, is all challenging business models, how we market and who owns and controls our identity. Eben Moglen founding director of the Software Freedom Law Center delivers informed insight for anyone using Facebook, Google, Linkedin and the numerous other online platforms.
Everyone wants a piece of you these days: Google, Facebook, Flickr, Apple, AT&T, Bing. They’ll give you free e-mail, free photo storage, free web hosting, even a free date. They just want to listen in.
And you can’t wait to let them. They’ll store your stuff, they’ll organize your photos, they’ll 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 5th, Moglen asked the audience 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.
What: Software Freedom Law Center Chairman and Columbia Law Professor Eben Moglen will speak on “Freedom In the Cloud: Software Freedom, Privacy, and Security for Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing.”
