    NOTE: Get to Cory’s readings early. Both for a seat and (at Powell’s) a decent chance to get something signed. Crowds are often enormous.

    I think the Borderlands event is actually Feb 8, but is showing up as Feb 9 due to an incorrect timezone setting (since it shows the event time as 3am-5am, which would be a cool way to keep the crowds under control, but…).

    The home page events listing has it correctly as 

    “Cory Doctorow, HOMELAND (Tor, Hardcover, $17.99) Friday, February 8th at 7:00 pm”

    The day after Cory visits Seattle, Bruce Harrell of Seattle City Council will introduce a bill regulating two drones the Seattle Police Department purchased with U.S. Department of Homeland Security funding.

    Last week, we discovered that our police sneaked in a set of public surveillance cameras (also DHS-funded), with the intention of creating a wireless mesh network including 30 cameras, 160 access points, and miles of fiber optic cable, throughout the city, all in the name of port security.  Assistant Chief Paul A. McDonagh #4708, commander of the SPD Special Operations Bureau, was quoted as saying, “I don’t call it a surveillance camera – surveillance to me implies someone is sitting there watching it all the time. These are just cameras watching a general area.” (video).  Other agencies with access include the Seattle Department of Transportation, the Fire Department, U.S. Coast Guard, and “the Homeland Security Nexus.”
