I’ve just looked over the program for this year’s Computers, Freedom, and Privacy. This’ll be the first one I’ve gone t. For a long time, I thought of it as a place where epic things happened, something I might someday aspire to attend. So when Frank asked me to be on a panel proposal he was putting together, I thought, “That sounds like fun, but I’m not even worthy to attend CFP yet.”Well, long story short, we’re on the program, so I’m going, and it’s a bit of a rush.
In addition to our own panel — Rights & Responsibilities for Software Programs?, the program looks great. Among the highlights:
- Frank has another panel, Privacy, Reputation, and the Management of Online Communities, with a line-up of supersmart Young Turks of Internet Law.
- I almost wish I didn’t have to present, because at the same time as my own panel is another neat-sounding one on :charismatic content.”
- The first day includes the usual tutorials, including the disturbing-sounding E-Deceptive Campaign Practices: Elections 2.0
- A ten-year retrospective on David Brin’s The Transparent Society.
