Hey HCS-

 

We have a dinner scheduled with Professor Jonathan Zittrain on Tuesday,
April 23rd at 6pm in Cabot Private Dining room.

 

Short Bio:

"""

Jonathan Zittrain is Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and the Harvard
Kennedy School of Government, Professor of Computer Science at the Harvard
School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and co-founder of the Berkman
Center for Internet & Society.  His research interests include battles for
control of digital property and content, cryptography, electronic privacy,
the roles of intermediaries within Internet architecture, human computing,
and the useful and unobtrusive deployment of technology in education.

 

He performed the first large-scale tests of Internet filtering in China and
Saudi Arabia, and as part of the OpenNet Initiative co-edited a series of
studies of Internet filtering by national governments, including Access
Denied: The Practice and Policy of Global Internet Filtering, and Access
Controlled: The Shaping of Power, Rights, and Rule in Cyberspace.

 

He is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Internet Society, the Board
of Directors of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the Board of
Advisors for Scientific American.  He has served as a Forum Fellow of the
World Economic Forum, which named him a Young Global Leader, and
Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence at the Federal Communications Commission.

Professor Zittrain is an excellent speaker and generally fun person, and I
highly recommend trying to attend if you can.

 

As usual, please send me an email if you'd like to attend the dinner.
