Limited Capacity seats available

Yasha Levine, a writer for Silicon Valley techblog PandoDaily and former editor-in-chief of The eXile, will be returning from a summer vacation on the front lines of the conflict in Ukraine to discuss his research into the massive amount of personal information that is collected on a daily basis by private tech companies around the valley, and what those companies are doing and could potentially do with that information.

While everyone has their undies in a bunch over revelations that the NSA has been spying on American citizens, companies like Google and Facebook are sucking up data on everything from political sympathies to sexual orientation. Furthermore, Tor—which purports to anonymize online searches—was developed, built and financed by the U.S. military and intelligence establishment.
