Subject: BayFF on August 3: Iranian Protests and Digital Media

Dear Seth,

Join EFF at San Francisco's PariSoMa on Monday, August 3, from 7pm -
9pm as we discuss the lessons of Iran and other global protests,
what's happening now, and how to make the digital media we create
serve netizens in authoritarian regimes.

Iranians protesting the results of the recent election found an outlet
and a means of organizing with the Internet, and showed that new
digital media can help free speech and fight repression
globally.  But what happens now that the headlines and the Twitter
trends have died down?

Panelists include Cyrus Farivar, journalist author of the forthcoming
"The Internet of Elsewhere", Net activist in the Iranian protests
Austin Heap, and EFF's International Outreach Coordinator, Danny

Seating is limited, so please RSVP to events at eff.org. $20 Admission;
no one turned away for lack of funds.  Secure your spot by purchasing
tickets online here: http://secure.eff.org/BayFF .

For more details, see our online calendar:

See you there!

EFF appreciates your support and respects your privacy.
