-#### The Ethics Void (2018)
-[Video][ev-video] • [Slides][ev-slides-pdf]
-• [Slides Source Code][ev-src]
-Many communities have widely adopted codes of ethics governing the moral
-conduct of their members and professionals. Some of these codes may even be
-enshrined in law, and for good reason—certain conduct can have enormous
-consequences on the lives of others.
-Software and technology pervade virtually every aspect of our lives. Yet,
-when compared to other fields, our community leaders and educators have
-produced an ethics void. Last year, I introduced numerous topics concerning
-privacy, security, and freedom that raise serious ethical concerns. Join me
-this year as we consider some of those examples and others in an attempt to
-derive a code of ethics that compares to the moral obligations of other
-fields, and to consider how leaders and educators should approach ethics
-within education and guidance.

-#### The Surreptitious Assault on Privacy, Security, and Freedom (2017)
-[Video][sapsf-video] • [Slides][sapsf-slides-pdf]
-• [Slides Source Code][sapsf-src] • [Bibliography][sapsf-bib]
-Privacy, security, and personal freedom: one cannot be had without the
-others. Each of these essential rights are being surreptitiously
-assaulted; only the most technical among us even know what to look for, let
-alone how to defend ourselves. Governments, corporations, and groups of
-ill-minded individuals are spying and preying upon both users and bystanders
-with unprecedented frequency and breadth. For those of us who do understand
-these issues, it would be irresponsible not to fight for the rights of
-others and continue to bring these assaults to light.
-This talk will survey the most pressing issues of today, including topics of
-government surveillance and espionage; advertisers and data analytics; the
-Internet of Things; corporate negligence; public policy and the crypto
-wars; dangers of a non-free Web and untrusted, ephemeral software; pervasive
-monitoring; remote servers, services, and "the cloud"; modern vehicles;
-the fight against decentralization and free software; societal pressures and
-complacency with the status quo; and more.
-Attendees will walk away with a broad understanding of these topics; an
-overview of mitigations; and dozens of resources for further research and
-discussion with others. No prior knowledge of security or cryptography are

-#### Restore Online Freedom! (2016)
-[Video][rof] • [Slides][slides-pdf] • [Slides Source Code][slides-src]
-• [LibrePlanet Collection][collection]
-Imagine a world where surveillance is the default and users must opt-in to
-privacy. Imagine that your every action is logged and analyzed to learn how
-you behave, what your interests are, and what you might do next. Imagine
-that, even on your fully free operating system, proprietary software is
-automatically downloaded and run not only without your consent, but often
-without your knowledge. In this world, even free software cannot be easily
-modified, shared, or replaced. In many cases, you might not even be in
-control of your own computing---your actions and your data might be in
-control by a remote entity, and only they decide what you are and are not
-allowed to do.
-This may sound dystopian, but this is the world you're living in right
-now. The Web today is an increasingly hostile, freedom-denying place that
-propagates to nearly every aspect of the average users' lives---from their
-PCs to their phones, to their TVs and beyond. But before we can stand up
-and demand back our freedoms, we must understand what we're being robbed of,
-how it's being done, and what can (or can't) be done to stop it.
