"The right to freedom of association is fine, but why
shouldn't the cops be allowed to mine your social network to figure out if you're hanging out with gangbangers and terrorists?”
Cory Doctorow, Little
Trading personal freedoms for security is one the of main
themes of this year’s one Book, One Zip Code selection, Little Brother, by Cory Doctorow and a main topic of conversation in the community after the popular
author’s recent presentation at Deerfield High School.
To keep the conversation going, the Village of Deerfield and the Deerfield Fine Arts Commission – both partners in the community-wide reading program of Deerfield, Bannockburn and Riverwoods – are hosting a talk
by Adam Schwartz, senior staff counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) at Deerfield’s Village Hall, Monday, November 12 at 7 p.m. Mr. Schwartz’s talk will focus on government surveillance, privacy and the First Amendment.
Join your neighbors for a stimulating discussion on how the
abuse of digital technology threatens our privacy and civil liberties.
