Bay Area: Join us 7/19 to discuss technical troubles with drone warfare


Enlarge / Former military technician Lisa Ling will talk to us about the problems of drone warfare at Ars Technica Live on 7/19.

National Bird, directed by Sonia Kennebeck.

Join Ars Technica editors Annalee Newitz and Cyrus Farivar in conversation with Ling next week this Wednesday, July 19 at Ars Technica Live in Oakland, California.

She’ll discuss her experiences and explain technical issues with drones that have profound implications for the current War on Terror. There will be plenty of time for audience questions, too.

Ars Live takes place on the third Wednesday of every month at Eli’s Mile High Club in Oakland (3629 MLK Way). They have the best tater tots you’ve ever eaten. So crispy!

Doors open at 7pm, and the live filming is from 7:30pm to 8:20-ish (be sure to get there early if you want a seat). Stick around afterward for informal discussion, beer, and snacks. Can’t make it out to Oakland? Never fear! Episodes will be posted to Ars Technica the week after the live events.

The event is free but space is limited, so RSVP using Eventbrite. You can also keep up with the latest Ars Live doings on Facebook. See you soon, Bay Area Arsians!
