Arlington Meeting Info & Maps       


The program planners for our First Wednesday PATACS meetings in Arlington are looking for topics that members would like to have explored or questions answered - this is your opportunity to have a say in subjects addressed at this meeting. This is a smaller meeting than the Fairfax meeting, and it allows for much more interaction between members than is possible in Fairfax. And there's the post-meeting Pizza and Salad SIG, the post-meeting social at a nearby restaurant - another value-added feature of your membership! Please send your suggestions to our meeting program planners at arlmtgpgm@patacs.org.

Privacy - Book Cover

The End of Privacy?

Presented by
B. J. Mendelson

In this new presentation, B.J. Mendelson (author of Privacy: And How We Get It Back) examines all the different ways your data is collected and used against you by the big tech companies. Often, that data collection is done without your permission. Mendelson highlights the offline steps you can take to protect yourself while outlining a solution to today's privacy woes ... And maybe even a way for you to make some money in the process.

B.J. Mendelson is the author of the cult-classic "Social Media Is Bull****" (St. Martin's Press). When not writing comic books, Mendelson has debated the ambassador to Pakistan at the United Nations about social media, traveled around the world to talk about data collection and marketing, and consulted with successful brands such as Subaru North America. His new book, "Privacy: And How We Get It Back" is now available on Audible and Amazon.

"Privacy: And How We Get It Back" is now on sale. Come check it out: http://amzn.to/2DyvXbR
