And it’s time for what seems to be a quarterly update!
In early June, Kaliya and I spoke at Computers, Freedom, and Privacy, a conference that took place within earshot of DC. I introduced some new research I’ve been playing around with, and we covered a lot of what has gone on in NSTIC over the past few years. One interesting note from the conference was that there is not a legal definition for “anonymity” or “pseudonymity.” There seem to be different reasons for this, but I view it as an avenue for exploration.
Then in July, we co-spoke (again!) at the HOPE X conference. Because the keynote, featuring Ed Snowden, wound up understandably running an hour over time, our talk started at midnight, which turned it from a professorial lecture into a small group discussion that I think went quite well. Although you glean some things from the talk abstract, you should probably listen to the audio recording for the full picture, forgiving some of my late night snarkiness. Be warned– our talk was the last of the night, and with permission from AV we wound up running until nearly 2am.
I have a few more things in the pipeline, so maybe at this rate there will be a useful update in January 🙂
