FTC’s exploring privacy roundtable webcast

“The Federal Trade Commission will host a series of day-long public roundtable discussions to explore the privacy challenges posed by the vast array of 21st century technology and business practices that collect and use consumer data. Such practices include social networking, cloud computing, online behavioral advertising, mobile marketing, and the collection and use of information by retailers, data brokers, third-party applications, and other diverse businesses. The goal of the roundtables is to determine how best to protect consumer privacy while supporting beneficial uses of the information and technological innovation.”

This roundtable was held at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law
Booth Auditorium, Boalt Hallp, and webcast for the rest of us not able to attend.
