"Privacy on the Net - Who's watching (out for) you?"

03/13/01 RMIUG Meeting - "Privacy on the Net - Who's watching (out for) you?"

The Tuesday, March 13th, 2001 meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG) will be a panel discussion called "Privacy on the Net - Who's watching (out for) you?" Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating discussion on the timely and important issue of online privacy.

Andy Cervantes (ac@privacyfoundation.org), Chief Operating Officer at the Denver-based Privacy Foundation will be our first speaker. Information is presented to us as a commodity in many forms: newspapers, stock tips and sitcoms. Now, the eyes are turning back towards us. Andy will discuss why privacy is no longer just the domain of movie stars and politicians, but is actually a right and resource that belongs to all of us.

Jeff Finkelstein (jf@persona.com), Director of Product Strategy at Persona, Inc., will examine emerging privacy issues facing consumers, businesses and government. Jeff's talk will survey a number of current privacy issues including Workplace Surveillance, Wireless Privacy, European Union Safe Harbor laws, Health Care & Medical Records privacy, and online profiling.

As always, plenty of time will be allocated for interactive Q&A, so bring lots of questions and be ready for an interesting evening of interactive discussion.

The meeting is Tuesday, March 13th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm (with optional 6:30 pm start for refreshments and informal networking). The meeting will be held at The National Center for Atmospheric Research at 1850 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, which is located on the west end of Table Mesa Drive, up the hill, right under the Flatirons. For door-to-door driving direction, go to MapQuest (http://www.mapquest.com/ ), click on Driving Directions, enter your starting address, NCAR's address, and voila! Park in the NCAR lot, go in the main door, and ask the guard to point you to meeting, which is held in the main auditorium, right off the lobby. The meeting is free and open to the public, but we may pass the hat to help defray expenses.

Our meeting location seats about 120 people. That is usually enough room to accommodate all attendees, but it's impossible for us to predict how many people will show up for any given meeting. Seating is always on a first-come, first serve basis, and in the event of more attendees than seats, we won't be able to admit additional people into the auditorium after all seats are filled.
