Aired on Tuesday, September 29th.

On this edition of ST, we speak with P.W. Singer, who is a strategist and senior fellow at the New America Foundation; the founder of NeoLuddite, a technology advisory firm; and the author of several award-winning books. Singer is widely considered a leading expert on trends and tactics in 21st-century warfare, and he'll be giving a free-to-the-public lecture tonight (Tuesday the 29th) on the TU campus. The talk is entitled "Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know," and it begins at 7:30pm in Helmerich Hall. Singer tells us what his "Cybersecurity and Cyberwar" lecture will cover -- and also talks about his newest book, a novel that imagines what a global war would be like if it took place in the very near future. You can learn more about Singer's event at TU tonight here.
