On Thursday morning in London - Scrambling for Safety - further discussion
of the Government's plans for E-Commerce.  Several of us on this list
attended the last SFS conference and found it very stimulating.  See
http://www.fipr.org/sfs35.html for details; email sfs35@fipr.org with name
& organisation (e.g. OxLUG) to register (free).
   The connections between Home Office policy on interception and powers
   proposed in Part.III of the DTI's draft Electronic Communications Bill
   (see FIPR Press Release) will be explored, and well as the legal
   framework for establishing voluntary licensing of cryptography
   services, and recognition of digital signatures.
   09:15 - 13:45, Thursday 23 September 1999
       Old Theatre, Main Building, London School of Economics,
       Houghton St., London WC2

Secondly, the British Computer Society in Reading are organising an
introductory lecture about Linux:
  "Linux - Mission Impossible?" on 17th November at the university 
   (7.30pm for 8pm) - contact Peter Wigglesworth (01256 371097) for
  details.  Speaker: Peter Robinson, ICL.

Finally, don't forget Linux 'Expo in London on 6th/7th October (those of
us who can get there are aiming for the 6th rather than the 7th).
