GUARDIAN editor Alan Rusbridger initiated a lively debate when he dropped in to the Campden Business Forum to talk to members.
Mr Rusbridger, who has recently come under fire for his decision to publish secret files leaked by the US intelligence analyst Edward Snowden, addressed the meeting last Friday.
He covered the issues raised by Mr Snowden, state spying in the age of digital communications and the dangers of this expanding without an appropriate level of control.
