Written by Tim Hoagland

2015-08-11-SXSW-panelpicker2 2015 was a successful trip to SXSW for CDT, with six speakers as well as a variety of additional staff taking part in eight events. We covered everything from government surveillance to privacy to free speech, and this year we’d like to make an even bigger (and more diverse) imprint on the creative minds that collect in Austin each year. That’s why we’ve submitted or are a part of 7 proposed panels and talks for 2016. We’re covering a wide expanse of topics – from how to manage the complex issue of reporting “terrorist activity” online, to debuting preliminary guidelines for doing health research with wearables data that honors user privacy and dignity. So go to SXSW’s PanelPicker and create an account (2 minutes or less). Check out our submissions below, give them the thumbs up, and comment below to explain why each is a conversation that needs to happen! Also be sure to share them across all your social media accounts. Your support will make sure our voice is heard in Austin, and carried on by minds that have the capacity to help us make change – VOTE NOW!
