Next Bay Area Futurist Salon is the coming Friday the 19th of July. One theme is copyright law and the consequences for the future described in the book from Lawrence Lessig 'the future of ideas'.
Second theme is what are the consequences of ever cheaper surveillance technology. Will we have to choose between freedom and privacy as David Brin covered in his book: 'Transparent Society'.
You don't have to have read the books to take part in the Salon, just bring your open mind :-)
