Penn's Internet Law Symposium (October 19 & 20) worth the time

Tom Paine

Tickets are still available for a symposium, "The Evolving Internet", presented by the University of Pennsylvania Law Review and UPenn's Center for Technology, Innovation & Competition, to be held this Friday and Saturday (the 19th & 20th) at Golkin 100, Michael A. Fitts Auditorium, on Penn's Campus. The event features a star-studded presenter list and the cost is extremely reasonable, even for private sector attorneys. A couple of receptions and meals are thrown in to boot; its probably the best value I've seen in Philly in some time.

New York Times Technology Columnist David Pogue will deliver the keynote. Other participants include Craig Partridge, Chief Scientist for Networking Research at BBN Technologies (which played a key role in developing the Internet), and Tim Wu, Columbia University telecom policy authority and author of The Master Switch. There will be several panels on evolving Internet technology and law, including discussions with executives from Google/Motorola Mobility, Verizon Wireless, and NBC Universal.

The event will run from 2pm to 6pm on Friday and 8:15am to 6pm on Saturday. CLE credits can be earned with an additional fee.
