    Recorded on Mar 8, 2014

    With recent disclosures about online surveillance, Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, continues his dedication to the pursuit of individual privacy and transparency.

    Labeled everything from martyr, anarchist, whistle-blower, hero or tyrant, Assange has ignited international headlines over the past six years, arguably becoming one of the most polarizing and provocative figures of our time.

    During this one-on-one conversation with The Barbarian Group’s Benjamin Palmer, Assange will discuss the importance of online privacy, the ethical and political implications of releasing classified information into the public realm, and the concept of the “Internet Nation”.

    The interview will also address subjects including the relationship between government surveillance and national security, the implications of online democracy, and the future of the Internet.

    Internet activist Samuel Carlisle aka SamTheTechie on what Mozilla and libraries have in common. Here’s someone we should be working with as he gets it.

    Speaking of someone we as librarians should be working with, I found that video via the Mozillarian blog which is “an experimental blog exploring the intersection between the Mozilla community and the Library world.” In this video Mozillarian Christine “explains our #mozillarian idea.”
