IRE Meetup - Digital Rights, Press Freedom, Journo Security
If you are headed to IRE in Boston this weekend and want to connect over drinks to talk about the intersection of digital rights and press freedom, let’s meet up:
The Connexion Lounge at the Marriott
7pm on Thursday night
For more info contact @jcstearns.
This is an informal get together for anyone who is interested in chatting about issues like:
- “Right to Record” issues impacting journalists work, and the Department of Justice’s recent actions in this area.
- Internet policies that impact reporters and data journalists like SOPA, PIPA and Net Neutrality.
- Journalist arrests and data security, especially while covering protests and conflict areas.
Other policy issues relevant to investigative journalists like FOIA, Anti-SLAPP legislation, etc…
(This is just me pulling this together, no sponsor, so no free drinks, but plenty of sparkling conversation!)
