Computers Freedom & Privacy Conference

Last week, I went to Washington DC to be a part of the 21st Annual Computers, Freedom & Privacy Conference.  I will post the collected videos and transcripts from the conference on here shortly.  But I will put up a few of the pictures that I took first.

I actually thought that I had taken more pictures, but I was apparently too busy tweeting to snap photos.  With the likes of danah boyd, Senator Patrick Leahy, Alessandro Acquisti from Carnegie Mellon, Cameron Kerry from the Department of Commerce, Edith Ramirez from the FTC and many others, it is easy to understand why content ruled over pics.

The Georgetown Law Center hosted the event and did a fantastic job.  They really have a cool setup there with an older building (McDonough Hall) that has been updated and expanded.  The three days of the conference all had awesome weather not that we were outside much.

What little time I did spend outside was on these rows of benches and tables dealing with a few client calls and emergencies.

This did not seem like an urban, metropolitan setting.

Hart Auditorium in the Georgetown Law Center.  I LIVED in the many little balconies.  Mostly because they were hard to get to and were one of the few places in the auditorium with electrical outlets to power dying Apple devices.

There was something charmingly retro about the Auditorium.

The scene of the Happy Hour after the first day of the conference at the Dubliner (sponsored by the good folks at the Center for Democracy & Technology).

At the intersection of the new and historic section of the law school building, there is a rather narrow circular staircase.  It both fascinated and scared a good number of us.

I tried to take a few pictures of it without falling into the matrix.

The other side of McDonough Hall.

This is a quick picture that I took of the “Lawyers” panel on privacy and legal issues.  True to form, the lawyers were a bit nonchalant about incorporating technology into the presentation.  I snapped this particular one because the featured screen behind them read “NO SIGNAL — HELP.”
