Post by J. Mickevi » Mon, 12 Sep 1994 06:46:46



Brookline, MA, September 9, 1994 --- The Sun User Group today announced
that Steve Jackson, founder and editor-in-chief of Steve Jackson
Games, will deliver a keynote address at the "UNIX & The Law"
symposium, taking place November 14-17, 1994 at the Driskill Hotel in
Austin, TX.  Jackson's address, entitled, "Privacy, Responsibility,
and Computers" will be presented on Tuesday, November 15 from 9 a.m. -
10:30 a.m.  The "UNIX & The Law" symposium is the premiere of a unique
multi-industry event showcasing speakers from the technical, legal,
and law enforcement professions.
        Jackson will discuss the current state of laws on "search and
seizure" of computers, as well as various related privacy and legal
issues such as corporate access to employee e-mail and copyright in
the digital era.
        Steve Jackson, founder and editor-in-chief of Steve Jackson
Games, has been a professional game designer since 1976.
        In 1990, the U.S. Secret Service invaded his office as part of
a confused "hacker hunt," seizing equipment (including an active BBS)
and manuscripts. With the aid of the Electronic Frontier Foundation,
his company filed suit against the Secret Service and the US
government, and won more than $50,000 in damages.
        He remains very active with the EFF, in hopes of preventing
further intrusions against computer users. The SJ Games BBS has grown
into one of Texas' leading Internet access services, Illuminati
Online.
        "UNIX & The Law" is an educational and technical symposium
that will feature four days of talks and tutorials and bring together
speakers and attendees from not only technical fields but the legal
and law enforcement professions as well.  This symposium will be the
first forum in which representatives from these three distinct areas
can address the growing connections between their fields.  Technical
papers and presentations concerning topical issues of legality and
morality, as well as other topics of interest to the Sun/SPARC
community, will be offered.
        The symposium is produced by the Sun User Group, co-sponsors
of SunWorld '94.  The Sun User Group, Inc., is an international,
not-for-profit, technical and professional association. Our members

Brookline, MA, September 15, 1994 The Sun User Group today announced

will chair a panel at their next conference, the UNIX & The Law

the premiere of a unique multi-industry event showcasing speakers from
the technical, legal, and law enforcement professions.  Mr. Sterling's
panel, entitled "The Future of Computer Crime" will bring together
experts from all three fields to discuss what looms on the legal
horizon as more and more people conduct their business and spend their
leisure time electronically.

Sterling has been dealing with the future of technology as an author,
journalist, editor, and critic for many years.  His most recent book,
The Hacker Crackdown: Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier , is
a non-fiction work on computer crime and electronic civil liberties.

Electronic Frontier Foundation and serves on the Police Liaison
Committee of this local Texan electronic civil liberties group.  He
brings a vast body of research and general knowledge of both the
computer industry and the legal profession to this panel discussion.

enforcement professionals and hackers - to sit at the table and give
us a new insight into the future.

feature four days of talks and tutorials and bring together speakers
and attendees from not only technical fields but the legal and law
enforcement professions as well.  This symposium will be the first
forum in which representatives from these three distinct areas can
