Upcoming Events in March

I’ve been rather remiss in updating my blog. Here are a few upcoming events:

Saturday-Sunday March 17-18 – Guardian Investigative Journalism Masterclass
Time: 10:00-5:00pm

Paul Lewis and I are back to teach journalists, lawyers, campaigners, authors and others the tricks of the investigative journalism trade. We’ve added a beefed up section on understanding company accounts and tracking assets as well as a section on keeping sources safe from online and other forms of surveillance. Our previous courses sold out quickly so if you want to attend sign up soon.

Location: Guardian offices, Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9GU

Saturday 10 March 2012 – TEDxWarwick 2012
Time: 10:00am – 6:00pm

I’ll be speaking in the morning half of this all-day event at Warwick University. TEDx is a spin-off of the prestigious TED talks, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The theme of the conference is Global Challenges and I’ll be giving a talk entitled, ‘The beginning of the end of the free internet’.

Date: Wednesday 29 February 2012 – LSE Literary Festival
Time: 6.30-8:00pm
Censorship in an Age of Freedom

I’ll be at the London School of Economics Literary Festival speaking on censorship with author Nick Cohen (You Can’t Read This Book) and director of POLIS Charlie Beckett. We’ll be talking about the censorship and secrecy that abounds in an age of information overload. With a multitude of online voices do we know more than before? Are we closer to the truth? Or are we becoming more susceptible to propaganda and spin?

Location: Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building
