John Philippides’ wins New York Time Summer Reading Contest

Congratulations to John Philippides (I) who participated in The New York Times’ 10 week Summer Reading Contest in its 8th week. The senior wrote about data tracking in cars and the impact on government spying in 1970’s Argentina, a movement that prompted his family’s evacuation to the United States: ”My mother’s family lived in Argentina during part of the ‘Dirty War’ a period starting in 1976 when the government abducted and killed thousands of Argentine citizens. Her father suspected that the government was spying on his family. When a group of soldiers entered their apartment and tore through his family’s belongings without their consent, they fled to the United States.”
