On Thursday night, the ACLU will be holding a public discussion about privacy laws in the internet age at the Langdon Street Cafe from 6pm to 7:30pm. Here's the rundown from the ACLU's website:


The Changing Law And Culture Of Privacy In The Wired Age

Come think out loud about how our views of privacy are evolving as wired culture becomes the norm.

Join us Thursday, April 17 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Langdon Street Cafe for a conversation with panelists:

* Frederick S. Lane (First Amendment legal expert and specialist in emerging technology)

* Thomas Streeter (UVM sociology professor and specialist in media, technology, law, and culture)

* Matt Shagam (UVM grad student specializing in Internet media and social trends)

* Allen Gilbert (ACLU executive director).

Free and open to all.

Unfortunately, my son has a school play at the exact same time and I won't be able to make it. I'd like to hear their opinion on who owns blogs. Do I have any rights to this yackfest or does it all belong to I'm guessing it's the latter but could Blogger sue someone if the writer of the blog sold their blog to someone else? Hopefully, some other the other bloggers in the area will be there for it and will have a full report.
