Here’s a quick look at two events coming up on FORA.tv.
Last week’s dramatic discovery of an Al-Qaeda plot to blow-up an airliner, and how it was foiled by an operative working with the CIA, MI6, and Saudi intelligence services, revealed how the terrorist organization is evolving in its methods. Though intelligence agencies have the ability to counter such plots, general aviation security is still an important tool in preventing terrorism. On May 16, the National Journal presents Securing the Skies: Aviation Security for Safer Global Airways, an event that will discuss how various international security services must act in concert to keep flying safe as well as consider privacy concerns.
This weekend, FORA.tv gears up for Maker Faire Bay Area 2012, a two day extravaganza featuring the best in arts, engineering, technology and other creative projects among the do-it-yourself community. Demonstrations with 3D printers, lasers, robots and Tesla coils are only a few of the exciting projects on tap for this weekend. And in usual fashion, Adam Savage from the Discovery Channel’s hit show Mythbusters will join the stage to offer his usual inspirational, keynote speech. Here’s Savage speaking at last year’s Maker Faire.
