Judge LaDoris H. Cordell (ret), Independent Police Auditor, City of San Jose - Moderator

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. died in one of the most shocking assassinations in U.S. history, but little is remembered about the trials and tribulations he faced in his final year. Award-winning television and radio broadcast host Smiley will chronicle the final 365 days of Dr. King’s life. Despite assaults on his character and ideology, Dr. King remained committed to ending racial inequality and segregation in our country.

Personal Data, Big Business, and the End of Privacy | WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2014

Adam Tanner, Fellow, Institute for Quantitative Social Science, Harvard University; Author, What Stays in Vegas: The World of Personal Data – Lifeblood of Big Business – and the End of Privacy as We Know It

In an age in which personal information is relentlessly harvested and aggregated, we’re eager to reap the benefits – but we lose sight of the fact that Internet giants, leading retailers and others are gathering data often with little oversight from anyone. Adam Tanner will explore the Wild West of data capture and all the ways our personal information is driving commerce, whether we know it – or like it – or not.

5:30 p.m. networking reception, 6 p.m. program, 7 p.m. book signing | SF Club Office | $20 non-members, $8 members, students free (with valid ID) | Program Organizer: Kevin O'Malley
