David Brin is always interesting and mind expanding. In his book The Transparent Society from the late 90s he wrote about his vision of the comming surveillance state and our need to watch our watchers. The time is now to implement these checks and balances. Don’t miss this Future Salon. In 2004 David Brin was Keynoting the Accelerating Change conference. Evelyn Rodrigues did a writup. #futuresalon
