This workshop will explain how to use the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and non-FOIA methods to find information that people don't want you to know, and how to pick topics and targets most likely to yield important insights. It will examine how to identify the officials and other sources most likely to provide assistance, and then how to get them to talk. It will explore how to investigate scientists and research efforts, and how to make use of the data you've received from government agencies. It won't really explain how to make much of a profit. But, if your idea of a good time is ruining an arrogant bureaucrat's day, you're in the right place.
