April 21: State of the Mobile Net & Growing Up Mobile Seminar in DC
(previous | next)

The Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee is hosting their second annual State of the Mobile Net conference this Wednesday, April 21 at the DC Hyatt Regency (400 New Jersey Ave NW). The conference runs 12-5 pm followed by a cocktail reception. This conference and the larger State of the Net conference are probably the two best annual Internet policy events in DC, so I hope you'll attend! This year's SOMN includes a bonus: a "Growing Up with the Mobile Net" seminar coordinated by Common Sense Media, 9-11:45 am. I'll be on the first panel of the morning on Kids' Privacy on the Mobile Net: Is it PII or TMI? with:

  • Amanda Lenhart of the Pew Internet & American Life Project, veritable goddess of cyber-sociological data (check out her terrific Social Media & Young Adults report);

  • Phyllis Marcus, who handles childrens' privacy and COPPA issues at the FTC (and is one of my favorite people there); and

  • Alan Simpson, Common Sense Media, a tireless advocate for educating children & parents.

I can only assume Alan asked me to be on this distinguished panel panel to represent kids directly on account of my baby-faced-ness! Jerry Rubin famously said, "Don't trust anyone over thirty"--so I've still got 3.5 months of trustworthiness to go! (Or perhaps he actually read the huge PFF paper Adam Thierer and I did last summer about COPPA and my recent post on the FTC's recently announced COPPA implementation review or my testimony on Maine's COPPA 2.0 law.) Anyway, the rest of the day looks great (so register here), including these sessions:

  • 10:30-11:45 am Will Mobile Technology Transform Learning, or Destroy It?
  • 12:50-1:50 pm Keynotes and Q&A: The Disruptive Pace of Mobile Net Evolution with Anna Gomez, Deputy Assistant Secretary, NTIA & Blair Levin, Director, Broadband Task Force, FCC
  • 2-3 pm Creating a Ubiquitous Mobile Net: At What Cost? or Navigating the Apps Marketplaces
  • 3:30-4:30 pm Locating Your Privacy or Spectrum: The Oxygen of the Mobile Net
  • 4:30-5:30 pm Consumer Protection In The Mobile Marketplace: Who's Job Is It?
