Pub Politico talk in Madison: Failures in Self-Regulation in Online Privacy

For those nearby, I’ll be the featured speaker at the Pub Politico gathering on Sunday, March 21, 2:00pm at Brocach Irish Pub in Madison, Wisconsin.

I’ll be speaking, informally, about “Failures in Self-Regulation in Online Privacy”, focusing on recent examples of how Google, Facebook, and other online companies continue to fall short in their attempts to protect user privacy, and whether/how the government should step in to provide additional protections for consumers of online services.

The gathering is co-sponsored by the American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin, and is free and open to the public. See the Facebook event page for more details if you wish, and I hope to see you there.


  1. Do you have results of this discussion, an transcript or link of any kind? The topic is of great interest to me.

  2. I have two datasets. One is cheyrigotpd and the other is public domain. Can I query the cheyrigotpd data to select out information from the public domain dataset and keep that data in the public domain? I would only query against the cheyrigotpd data, I would not keep it or use its attributes to update the public domain data.

  3. Masood, I don’t know what you mean by a copyrighted dataset. Do you mean it is proprietary data?

    (also, you’re using the email address of an Allan Dolovich, so I’m unsure who you really are)
