If you're as fascinated as I am by the interplay ofÂ privacy, identity and innovation, I hope to see you atÂ the pii2010 conference in Seattle, August 17-19! Organized by the folks who've put on the top-notchÂ Tech Policy Summit since 2003, and co-sponsored by The Progress & Freedom Foundation (among others),Â this event offers a truly unique perspective on privacy--not just another policy food fight, but a true roll-up-our-sleeves, in-depth seminar on what to do about privacy, especially through technological innovation.
I'll be on the "pii & Digital Advertising: Navigating the Regulatory Landscape" panel on the 18th at 10am, giving my usual talk about the need to be careful about the trade-offs inherent in privacy regulation.Â Check out the detailed agenda here.
TLFersÂ Larry Downes and Carl Gipson will also be attending, so we're planning a long-overdue "Alcohol Liberation Front" happy hour after the conference on August 18--details to be announced soon.
Check out the discussion around the #pii2010 hashtag on Twitter. And register today! Mid-August is supposed to be paradise in Seattle, and the week of the conference also happens to be Seattle GeekWeek, so there are a bunch of other events worth checking out in town before and after the pii2010 conference.
