Blogging from ‘Creating the Future’ … exploring the tensions between freedom and privacy in the Internet age

Today marks the official opening of the 19th annual Computers, Freedom and Privacy conference. I’ll be live-blogging the next few days thanks to the team behind the conference.

The conference is a timely event, as the Obama administration is making frequent news in this arena, from appointing a Chief Technology Officer & team to a new mandate for the Pentagon to wage cybersecurity. Complicated issues, for sure, and I’m excited to hear the speakers weigh in on topics from censorship to cloud computing. I particularly excited for Thursday, the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, when Rebecca MacKinnon will give a keynote, and I’ll be presenting on a breakout panel on Social Network Activism in the US and Beyond.
