EFF's Legal Director will walk us through the NSA Mass Surveillance that 
has been now confirmed by the government in light of the revelations of 
Edward Snowden.  She'll discuss the history of the spying revelations, 
up to and including the recent revelations, review the legal challenges 
that EFF and others have been mounting since 2006.  She'll discuss the 
government's changing legal justifications for the spying and its claims 
of oversight by the legislative, executive and judicial branches of 
government and the Constitutional implications of mass surveillance. 
Finally, she'll walk through what EFF and others are doing to try to 
bring the rule of law back to the NSA and what the implications are for 
all Americans, especially those who seek to develop and sell  technologies.
