Ira Winkler and Araceli Treu Gomes will be interviewing Presidential candidate John McAfee for an upcoming edition of the Irari Report. While they intend to cover broad topics including McAfee’s policies, the goals of his newly created Cyber Party political party, privacy concerns, life on the run, etc., they are accepting questions from their viewers. Questions can be submitted through The Irari Report Twitter account, @IrariReport.
For those of you unfamiliar with John McAfee, he was a computer programmer who invented the first commercial anti-virus program. The resulting company became one of the largest security specific companies in the world, until its acquisition by Intel. He lived in Belize, until he was named a person of interest in a murder investigation, went into hiding, was captured in Guatemala, and eventually allowed to return to the United States. No charges have been filed, and Belize has not requested extradition.
In the meantime McAfee has become a staunch privacy advocate and is critical of poor government cybersecurity practices. John McAfee is known for being very open and forthright when asked questions. This will be a very interesting interview, and Ira and Araceli invite viewers to submit any questions they might want answered. Again, you can send questions via Twitter to @IrariReport.
