The controversial think tank New America is holding a day-long symposium now in Washington D.C., titled "Cybersecurity for a New America : Big Ideas and New Voices".
At the moment, Admiral Mike Rogers, director of the NSA is speaking. Let's see what the horse's mouth has to say...

Last September, member NthOther authored a mostly overlooked post concerning the "Future of War" project. That thread discusses the academic arm of the military industrial complex, featuring Arizona State University's involvement.
Today's topics:

How can we protect both business and the wider net from the next wave of advanced persistent threats?
Can we keep cybersecurity from becoming something only the rich enjoy?
Where will the military, business, and hacktivist communities find the next generation of cyber warriors?
What might a "Cyber Red Cross" look like, and do we need it?
What is it like to be hacked for your political beliefs?
What is the future of bounty programs and vulnerability marketplaces?
How do corporations "head-hunt" for cyber board and executive talent?
How do reporters and business "speak" about threats and why does that matter?
What is the future of encryption and privacy?
What can Kant and other philosophers teach us about cybersecurity?

Tuesday and Wednesday, the New America organization will host a 2-day conference on just this topic, with the 1st talk featuring project directors from ASU and Duke University. Here is a link to the official agenda for this first annual conference, beginning at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow.

I thought these talks would be interesting for the membership here. Livestream on this page and it is airing on C-SPAN2 now.

Watching right now, thanks for the heads up. I was getting angry watching BO on C-SPAN 1 anyway.

I don't know how much this will help your anger level, lol.
Admiral Rogers has blown off the few questions regarding overreach and privacy concerns, saying only that they are "working within the confines of the law". Frustrating.

Nope, it didn't help me relax.

Watching C-SPAN 3 now (President's Task Force on Policing)

A quote from a panel member Chuck Wexler:
"management gets the union it deserves, if you don't treat the members well, they become more militant"

He is talking about public sector police unions becoming more militant against their management (aka civilian authority).
