Ford Hall Forum - Fall 2015 programs are here!

Digital Rights Management, Balancing Cyber Security and Privacy, Low Turnout in Municipal Elections.

All great topics for today! Too bad the low turnout for elections event is scheduled for After our Nov 3 election. Maybe we'll be able to provide an update on how an increased number of candidates seemed to engage the folks to get out and vote. That at least is my personal objective. To ensure that there is enough info to cast a good ballot and by doing so to entice as many folks as possible to get out and vote.
