Speaker change for Monday’s “Privacy in an Era of Change” panel

Midwinter Meeting/Annual Conference, Privacy

There is a change of speakers for Monday’s ALA Annual Conference panel “Privacy in an Era of Change,” sponsored by the Office for Intellectual Freedom and the Washington Office.

Jeff Jarvis will be unable to join us.  In his place will be Craig Wacker, program office for the Digital Media & Learning initiative of the MacArthur Foundation.  Thanks to Craig for filling in on such short notice!

The program is 10:30-noon in room W474 of McCormick Place West.  Following will be a tweet-up!

We hope you’ll be able to join us for what promises to be a terrific panel on an extremely important issue.  Joining Craig will be Mary Ellen Callahan, the Chief Privacy Officer for the Department of Homeland Security, and David Sobel, General Counsel for the Electronic Frontier Foundation.  What has changed about the prospects for privacy – both under a new administration and given all of the changes wrought by technology?  Come to this panel and participate in our discussion!
