My Wired column is up. There’s also a podcast now. Woo hoo!

Tomorrow I’m speaking at an American Constitution Society lunchtime event on surveillance. And today, I recorded a podcast for RU Sirius’ Neofiles show. I’ll provide a link when it’s up, and tell more about how fun the experience was.

Nerd Salon is a regular gathering of geeks and friends in which alcohol is consumed, puzzles are solved, interesting people talk about bizarrely technical topics, and hanging out is accomplished.

Our inaugural event will be a collective toast- and dance-fest in honor of ultra-nerd event CodeCon. Our plan is to invade the all-mashup nightclub Bootie at Annie’s Social Club. Join us!

Date/Time: Feb. 11 starting at 10:00 PM.

Where: Annie’s Social Club, 917 Folsom at 5th St.

For future Nerd Salon parties and announcements, join the mailing list.
