DC v SF: A Clash of Visions for Tech Policy
Monday, October 28, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Do our nation’s policymakers and entrepreneurs share the same vision for technological change? Or are they fundamentally in conflict?
What are the real fault lines in technology policy? Are traditional left/right divides breaking down? Where might a divided Congress reach consensus on policy issues crucial to the future of technology, such as privacy, immigration, intellectual property, censorship, Internet freedom, and biotech regulation? Can technology ultimately trump politics?
For answers and more questions, join moderator Declan McCullagh (Chief Political Correspondent for CNET, @declanm), and a panel of technology policy experts: Berin Szoka (President, TechFreedom, @BerinSzoka), Larry Downes (Internet industry analyst and author), and Mike McGeary (Co-Founder and Chief Political Strategist, Engine Advocacy, @mdmcgeary).
The event will be livestreamed and you can follow the conversation on Twitter with #DCvSF.
