Starting at 9:00am US EST (UTC-5) today, January 23, the State of the Net 2017 conference will stream live out of Washington, DC. This annual event brings together politicians, U.S. Congressional staff and other policy makers to discuss the current state of Internet policy, particularly as it relates to U.S. positions and policies. Given the new U.S. President, this year’s event should be of special interest. You can watch live at:
We will have two Internet Society staff participating:
- Steve Olshansky will be part of the 12:00noon panel on “Securing the Future of the Internet of Things” discussing our concerns about IoT security – and what solutions might be possible.
- Mark Buell will participate in the 3:30pm panel on “Assessing The Legitimacy Of Structures and Processes: An Open Forum On Internet Governance” which should have a vigorous discussion.
The full agenda from 9:00am until 5:00pm shows the breadth of topics to be discussed.
We encourage you all to tune in and watch live!
P.S. The sessions will be recorded so you will be able to watch them later.
