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!)
