Data and Goliath Book Tour

Over the next two weeks, I am speaking about my new book -- Data and Goliath, if you've missed it -- in New York, Boston, Washington, DC, Seattle, San Francisco, and Minneapolis. Stop by to get your book signed, or just to say hello.

Any chance you're going to cross the border into Canada for a Vancouver signing before or after Seattle?

I'll second that! Please come to Vancouver too, Bruce.

Possible venues: UBC, SFU, or BCIT schools; independent bookstore Banyen Books; Vancouver Public Library central branch. The folks at OpenMedia.ca would probably be very interested too (they're located in Vancouver).

OK, five US cities looks a little light for a book tour (it would be light for a UK book tour).

So is this the first of several?

Not even gonna ask you if you will be coming round my neck of the woods. Will settle for a video on youtube with decent line sound.

For me... best part of your books is your explanations and reflections on them.

What jumped out at me is that they're all cold places. Why not head south where it's warm?

No Russia tour? I know for a fact you have at least one major fan there... ;)

By the way, please come to Europe. Seriously. At some point in the near future but before the Singularity. Thanks.

It doesnt look like you are speaking at the Identity and Privacy conference in Wellington this year. Your thoughts, comments will be missed.

@ Lorenzo, @ Bruce

By the way, please come to Europe.

I second that. London would be nice so we can meet up with @Clive. And I'm certain there is more than one EU committee in Brussels that would benefit from your input too.

@ Bruce Schneier

Good luck with the tour--I imagine you'll be well received. Hope to see Brian Lamb of C-SPAN having you on Book TV talking about the issues brought out in your book.

Any updates about the effects of weather on your travel schedule? Tomorrow near DC looks ugly.

Still on visiting the EU parliament; I've got a reply from one of the MEPs, Jan Philipp ALBRECHT:

There has been a resolution by the European Parliament last year following an Inquiry on Electronic Mass Surveillance of EU Citizens in the course of which Mr Snowden also answered questions by MEPs. You can find a list of other experts and hearings here: http://www.polcms.europarl.europa.eu/cmsdata/upload/7e8c2dbe-f4bb-4e1e-a1c2-c36f350cfb85/att_20140306ATT80654-8381106833153840527.pdf. The resolution was published here: http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/getDoc.do?pubRef=-//EP//TEXT+TA+P7-TA-2014-0230+0+DOC+XML+V0//IT.


At the moment it is discussed in the LIBE committee whether there should be a follow-up to last year's inquiry. The Greens are very much in favour of it since new important revelations have come to light since March last year. Should there be a follow-up, we will certainly consider sending an invitation to Mr Schneier.

I guess that's it for now. Good to know that something is moving.

Barnes and Noble reports the store where the DC event was scheduled is closed today. Any news on rescheduling?

Please when are you coming to London? For your book tour or otherwise for a talk may be.
