FreedomBox Foundation's founder Eben Moglen says:

    "We're building software for smart devices whose engineered purpose
is to work together to facilitate free communication among people,
safely and securely, beyond the ambition of the strongest power to
penetrate, they can make freedom of thought and information a permanent,
ineradicable feature of the net that holds our souls."

The event will include a Q&A session, discussion and then lively debate
in the pub afterwards.
