If you’re concerned about digital rights and the role that government is playing in policing the Internet, then you may be interested in ORGCon.

Here’s the blurb I received from Jim Killock of the Open Rights Group this morning. Sounds like a fascinating line-up…

ORGCon is on Saturday 24th March 2012, at the University of Westminster in the heart of London, from 9.30am onwards. And it’s packed with exciting speakers, challenging debates, and workshops that will leave your mind exploding with ideas! 

Here’s your chance catch up with everything digital rights related, while meeting the brilliant minds of Lawrence LessigCory DoctorowWendy SeltzerRoss Anderson, Tom Lowenthal, and many more.

From the government snooping on your data to default internet blocking and monitoring to the corporate capture of state and democratic institutions – we’ll be covering vast regions of the digital rights sphere. And there may even be a competition or two!

For a taster of what you’ll be coming to take part in, have a look at these videos taken at the last ORGCon.
