"Government and Emerging Technologies"

October 11, 4:00-5:00 p.m.
Devoe Moore Conference Room, Bellamy 150E

It seems like technology is changing everything—from how we shop to how we eat, learn, travel and more. How should the federal, state, and local governments respond?

Join us for a discussion with Adam Thierer, author and Senior Research Fellow with the Technology Policy Program at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

Adam Thierer specializes in technology, media, Internet, and free-speech policies, with a particular focus on online safety and digital privacy. His writings have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Economist, the Washington Post, the Atlantic, and Forbes, and he has appeared on national television and radio.

Thierer is a frequent guest lecturer and has testified numerous times on Capitol Hill. Thierer has authored or edited eight books on topics ranging from media regulation and child safety issues to the role of federalism in high-technology markets. His latest book is "Permissionless Innovation: The Continuing Case for Comprehensive Technological Freedom."

This talk is presented by the L. Charles Hilton Jr. Center for the Study of Economic Prosperity and Individual Opportunity.
