I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in the QSymposium 20-23 February 2014 where there was much discussion about the Quantum Effect. It was especially wonderful to meet the great staff from CISS (Centre for International Security Studies) from the University of Sydney, the international participants from all over the world (Switzerland, Denmark, US, Canada, UK etc). It is also worth mentioning that Q was partially funded by the Carnegie Corporation in New York and that a documentary entitled the Q Effect will be published as proceedings of the symposium.

Below the letter from Director of CISS, Professor James Der Derian circulated at the annual Michael Hintze lecture. Uberveillance receives significant mention alongside "rising powers, new actors, financial crises, terrorist attacks, cyberconflicts, uberveillance, pandemics as well as natural and unnatural disasters."
