I’ve been invited to workshop a draft paper at Fordham on Friday. The series is the Center for Information Law & Policy Faculty Workshop. If you are a friendly NY-area academic and want to come hear a discussion of the current draft of “Regulating Mass Surveillance as Pollution: Learning from Environmental Impact Notices” I gather you are welcome (it’s 12:30 – 2:30) if you RSVP to Joel Reidenberg or N. Cameron Russell. They’ll send you a copy of the paper, warts and all. (I’m not giving their email here so as not to get them sp-m.)
The paper is something of a departure for me, as it’s primarily about surveillance in public places, not online.
Tomorrow I’ll be visiting NYU’s Center for Urban Science and Progress. Hearing a very scary talk earlier this year about all the ways in which CUSP plans to collect data about New Yorkers is what first motivated this paper, so it should be an interesting afternoon.
Meanwhile I have two other papers in various stages of production. It’s a busy time.
