Our speaker this month is Dr. Brandon Wiley. Dr. Brandon Wiley is the President of The Operator Foundation, a 501©3 tax-exempt non-profit organization founded to promote internet freedom, open communication and global internet security through technology development, deployment, and education. Operator develops hardware and software technologies to facilitate access to credible and relevant information and open communication around the world. Dr. Wiley is a well-renowned expert on peer-to-peer, decentralization, and Internet freedom technology. He is the co-author of the book “Peer-to-Peer: Harnessing the Power of a Disruptive Technology” and has spoken at numerous technical conferences, such as Black Hat, Defcon, and SXSW Interactive. He is a Google Ideas Research Fellow, an Open Technology Fund Rapid Response Research Fellow, and a member of the program committee for SXSW Interactive.

An ACTLab graduate, Brandon Wiley will be giving a talk titled: «The Future of Internet Freedom: Why It Will Fail, and How We Will Save It.» Dr. Wiley’s presentation on cyber liberties will span the theoretical framework of why cyber liberties and obtaining creditable news sources remains paramount in our current geo-political climate. He will also demonstrate custom designed wireless hardware devices created by The Operator Foundation that utilize the Iridium satellite network when internet blackouts occur.

Join us for the discussion from 7:00PM-9:00PM, followed by drinks and camaraderie from 9:00PM-10:00PM at Firehouse Lounge (605 Brazos St).

Capital Factory is located at 701 Brazos Street, on the 16th floor of the Omni Hotel. Once on the 16th floor, there should be a sign at the front desk directing you to our meetup. If there is no sign, and no one is on duty at the desk, we are usually in the room to the left of the front desk.
