Why would a geek leak? Come hear the man who inspired Edward Snowden to follow his conscience whistleblowing about the most all-pervasive state technology-based surveillance that has ever existed. Former NSA crypto-linguist and whistleblower Thomas Drake will be sharing a podium with former US Department of Justice whistleblower Jesselyn Radack, who is one of Snowden’s lawyers as well as having worked to defend Drake in his own case. Radack is the Director of National Security and Human Rights with the Government Accountability Project (GAP), the most important NGO protecting whistleblowers in the US.
The speakers will discuss:
- why you should care about Edward Snowden and his whistleblowing leaks?
- what the future of the Surveillance State looks like?
- what makes a geek leak closely guarded national security information?”
