If you left it up to us, we would go on for days about all the reasons you should join us at this year's #techprom (Tuesday, March 5th). But this year, we thought we'd bring you some feedback from our sponsors and supporters, who have made each of our events crazy, wonderful fun (oh, yeah, and business networking). Looking for an excuse to attend? Read on:
1. #techprom = DC Cool Innovators at Work
Innovation. It's more than just a word in our slogan. CDT has long championed legislation at the critical edge of innovation. As one of our sponsors put it, "From the companies implementing [issues] to the regulators who are closely following them, great conversation and debate amongst the attendees on the challenges around implementing privacy in the online and mobile landscape today is the highlight of the event."
2. CDT #techprom = Evidence Nerds Do Rule the World.
Our keynote speakers this year are Eileen Donahoe, US Ambassador to the UNHRC at Geneva, and Mitchell Baker, Chairperson of the Mozilla Foundation. Last year, we welcomed Senator Ron Wyden and Brad Burnham, a managing partner of Union Square Ventures, to the podium. From Members of Congress to agency chairmen, ambassadors to tech titans, policy makers to industry leaders, we've got proof to show you that nerds really do rule the world.
