Andrew Crocker, a fellow with the Electronic Frontier Foundation ( or EFF), joins us to provide an update on the ever expanding National Security Agency domestic surveillance scandal. The EFF has been one of the most vocal critics of the program and has been actively fighting it in the courts.
Thanks to our Miami Book Fair International coverage, Bennet also speaks to Michael Grunwald, the author of “The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Administration”.
Daniel Nazer, Staff Attorney on the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s intellectual property team, discusses the EFFs fight for legislation to counter patent trolls. Plus, Startup expert Tom Nora gives us his impressions on what is hot at SXSW Interactive.
