The 6th Annual State of the Net Conference was held on Wednesday, January 27th, 2010 at the Hyatt Regency, Capitol Hill.
The 2010 Conference featured keynotes from Comcast Chairman and CEO Brian L. Roberts and from Howard Schmidt, the incoming cyber security coordinator for the White House!
The panels framed policy debates around recent developments such as global free expression, broadband deployment, open government, and cloud computing. The State of the Net Conference is the only tech policy conference routinely recognized for its balanced blend of academics, consumer groups, industry and government (over 50% of 2009 attendees were government policy staff).
The State of the Net Conference offers unparalleled opportunities to network and engage in dialogue around key policy issues. Attendees participated in lively debates exploring privacy/security, telecommunications regulation, intellectual property and innovation, cloud computing, youth online safety, Internet governance and more.
