SD Forum Emerging Technology SIG Tonight ...
- He Everyone,
Almost forgot to tell you about tonights meeting of the Emerging
Technology SIG. A Futurist Salon regular: Bill Grosso is hosting and
the Speaker is Florian Pestoni, Software Engineer from IBM Almaden.
He will talk about Digital Rights Management.
With the advent of consumer grade digital technology, content such as
music and movies is no longer bound to the physical media that
carries it. This presents new challenges to content owners, who want
to protect their intellectual property while at the same time
extracting economic benefit from it. On the other hand, consumers
want ease of use and convenience.
In this talk, I will describe some of the existing and proposed
solutions, which represent different trade-offs between the needs of
the parties involved. While technology such as cryptography plays an
important role in this space, a complete solution usually relies on
legal and policy aspects; I will touch upon some of these issues to
give you a complete picture of this very complex space.

Hope you can make it, Mark.
- I was really hoping to get up to the bay area and see the Ross and Mark on
their topics, but sadly I have a flight to Colorado for Thanksgiving the same
day, and logistics won't permit me to leave later or from the Bay area.
Since I don't have a head I can mail/rent out and stream to me while I'm in the
air(e.g. http://www.troygardner.com/randomthoughts/secondsense.htm) I was
hoping someone could be more simple and audio/video tape it. I'd be happy to
pay for the tape or a copy of it.
Anybody willing to help a po' techie out?
