Countersurveillance at the Voltaire

It is time to take a stand against CCTV cameras. Against NFC Chips. Against our mobile phones listening to us. But before the big rebellion against technology starts, let’s all meet for a drink. Let’s meet at the Voltaire on Sunday, 23rd of March, at the Voltaire for the Uncanny Book-Club’s discussion of Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother.

Marcus, a.k.a “w1n5t0n,” is only seventeen years old, but he figures he already knows how the system works–and how to work the system. Smart, fast, and wise to the ways of the networked world, he has no trouble outwitting his high school’s intrusive but clumsy surveillance systems.

But his whole world changes when he and his friends find themselves caught in the aftermath of a major terrorist attack on San Francisco. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Marcus and his crew are apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security and whisked away to a secret prison where they’re mercilessly interrogated for days.

This Uncanny Book-Club Event will be hosted by Schira and Stefan and we’ll start at 5pm.

Feel free to bring your friends, even if they haven’t read the book, because it will be fun either way.
