DC versus SF: A Clash of Vision for Tech Policy Event on Monday, October 28, at 3 p.m. ET

Published

on

From our friends at TechFreedom:

How do DC and SF think about the future? Are their visions of how to promote, and adapt to, technological change compatible? Or are America’s policymakers fundamentally in conflict with its innovators? Can technology ultimately trump politics?

In the near-term, are traditional left/right divides breaking down? What are the real fault lines in technology policy? Where might a divided Congress reach consensus on tech policy issues like privacy, immigration, copyright, censorship, Internet freedom and biotech?

For answers and more questions, join moderator Declan McCullagh (Chief Political Correspondent for CNET), and a panel of technology policy experts: Berin Szoka (President, TechFreedom), Larry Downes (author, Laws of Disruption), and Mike McGeary (Co-Founder and Chief Political Strategist, Engine Advocacy). This event is co-sponsored by TechFreedom, Reason Foundation, and the Charles Koch Institute.

RSVP here. A live stream will be available here, and you can follow the conversation on Twitter with #DCvSF.

When:
Monday, October 28, 2013
12:00pm – 1:30 PT
The live stream will be available on this page.

Where:
Hyatt Regency
5 Embarcadero Center
San Francisco, CA 94111
