The dark light of the Web

Letting it all hang out : Privacy vs publicity in the virtual world

I’m looking forward to this seminar on privacy and publicity taking place as part of the Darklight festival this Friday. Daniel Solove (GWU Law School) is the keynote speaker; for an idea of what’s he’s done in the past, take a look at the freely-available PDF of his recent book, The Future of Reputation. Karlin Lillington of the Irish Times is chairing it (edit: chair to be confirmed), and there will be responses from a diverse panel: Damien Mulley (blogger, consultant and fan of fluff and chicken feet; coming despite the spam), smart techlaw solicitor Caroline Campbell, music journo (and blogger too) Jim Carroll, Cormac Callinan (formerly of ISPAI and first director of hotline.ie and Niall Larkin from Relevant Media and more.

Friday 27th June, Filmbase (Curved St, in Temple Bar), at 10am. All the info is at the Darklight website.

  1. Hi Daithí! I won’t actually be on this panel as I am abroad from tomorrow. I let them know several weeks ago, but from your link, I see this doesn’t seem to have been changed on the programme. I have just emailed them to double check that they remember that I won’t be there!

  2. Sorry you’ll miss it, Karlin. I’ll hopefully post photos and a summary of what was said here by the weekend.

  3. Indeed, sounds like it could be a very interesting discussion. If it’s anything like the IIA congress I think we’ll see a huge gulf of understanding between those who know and assume everyone knows and those who pretend to have a clue but haven’t.

    Definitely one of the highlights of the festival for me!
