Saturday, July 19, 2014: 4:00 pm (Serpico): In April 2013, the FBI sought information on what the journalist Barrett Brown was doing with an open source collaborative wiki that he founded called Project PM, and were equally as curious about what kind of dirt he had on his hard drives about the government contractors and intelligence firms he investigated on that site. Edward Snowden's leaks about the NSA have since exposed only the tip of the iceberg with regards to how much the U.S. intelligence community is capable of, and those efforts are largely assisted by the likes of companies who Project PM set out to research: Ntrepid, Abraxis Hacking Team, Cubic, Endgame, Palantir, and others. Now, more than ever, is the time to collect and analyze open source information about the shadowy companies who operate on behalf of the U.S. government, often without being held accountable.
