Join us this month for two awesome presentations about online privacy!

First, Gizmodo's Kashmir Hill will join us remotely and share some Internet of Things stories, like the time she was able to control the lights in a stranger's house in another state, and how Amazon includes all Echo owners into a random social network.

Then IT consultant and technical author Russell Mickler will walk us through the various privacy settings in Facebook so we can better control what we share with our contacts and only share the things we actually want to share.
