Our next salon will be held at LinkedIn Headquarters in Mountain View and will feature speakers from LinkedIn, 3taps, and Internet Archive to discuss the increasingly important topic of data as it relates to sharing, privacy, and innovation in the 21st century. Our speakers will each spend a few minutes sharing their personal work and experience with online data, and we will then transition into a panel discussion moderated by Tim O'Reilly, founder of O'Reilly Media, to further explore the topic.
CC Salons are informal events that bring people together around 21st century issues such as digital copyright, creativity, and sharing online. We typically have an audience of 30-50 professionals from many different disciplines, and the theme varies from education to science to media, and more.
Our speakers for the evening include:
