Last Call For Our Privacy Dinner Salon!

from the sign-up-now-or... dept

Putting out a last call for our upcoming Insight Dinner Salon held together with Privacy Identity Innovation 2011. The dinner will be on May 18th, in Santa Clara, California, and is shaping up to be a wonderful evening full of insightful people on the topic of privacy. We've already named some of our excellent facilitators for the evening, and wanted to add a few more great names to the list of facilitators:
  • Owen Tripp: The co-founder and COO of, one of the foremost online "reputation management" firms out there, and someone with a ton of experience and knowledge on issues related to privacy online.
  • Jim Brock: Founded and operates, which is a site for consumers to help make managing their online privacy easier. Obviously, he's got tons of insight into privacy issues.
  • Colin O'Malley: VP of Biz Dev and Privacy for Evidon, which helps deal with behavioral advertising and privacy issues. Before that, he was VP of Strategic Partnerships at TRUSTe, and has been deeply involved in privacy issues for many years.
Combine that with the previously announced Esther Dyson, Tara Hunt and Berin Szoka, and we've got a nice well-rounded group of facilitators, who will certainly make the evening's discussions quite insightful.

Again, this is a dinner salon, so the idea isn't to have these folks as talking heads, but instead they'll help kick off the discussion, which will lead into smaller tabletop discussions on the issue of privacy in an era where your "customers" may also be your "product." So, come prepared to participate and have some interesting and enlightening discussions.

We have a very small number of spots left, and fully expect them to sell out by Friday at the latest. So if you're thinking of coming, please sign up now...

    This may be an obvious answer, but will my privacy be maintained if I attend?

    I only ask because the last conference I attended (ARMA, a Records Management conference) sold my e-mail, phone number, snail mail, and legal name to scores of vendors at the conference, when I really only wished to attend a conference for the lectures, not get spammed. It took quite a while to unsubscribe for each mailing list and request no more callbacks...
