Last night I returned from Italy and a great experience at the AMICAL Conference in Rome. As promised in previous blogs, I will share more about it in subsequent blogs, in particular thoughts about liberal education and MOOCs.
In the meantime, tonight there is an interesting live stream event in NYC of which some might want to be aware. Planned prior to the NSA news, and more focused on corporate responsibilities, this event nonetheless will have to at least touch on contemporary issues, highlighting overall the significant role that "privacy" is playing in global culture.
Hope you can join us!
