State of the Net: Notes Forthcoming

I just got back from Washington, DC where I attended the State of the Net conference sponsored by the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee. It was a great conference.  I attended panel discussions with representatives from most of the major presidential campaigns, a panel discussion with Cary Sherman of the RIAA and others discussing Internet content filtering, and a panel discussion on social networking privacy with danah boyd and others.  At the table at which I ate lunch were persons from the Library of Congress, including the manager of their very-cool Flickr experiment.  I think Vint Cerf was sitting one row behind me during the last panel discussion of the day.

I’ve got many pages of handwritten notes on several of the sessions that interested me most.  I will be working to post my notes and thoughts over the next day or two as I dig out of my e-mail and catch up with other things. Please let me know if you have any specific questions or issues I should address.
