Forum? Blog? Censorship conference

Hey ITP!

I wanted to link everyone to the censorship conference happening at Princeton today. I just listened to the Information Technologies panel and a lot of the questions about censorship and about technologists working with policy makers in a human way felt very DH.

Here is the blurb from the Air-L internet researchers listserv:

“Today, Friday October 9 2015 the Princeton Center for
Information Technology Policy aka CITP will present a Conference on
Internet Censorship, Interference, and Control which will examine questions
like: What is the current state of internet accessibility”

<https://citp.princeton.edu/event/conference-on-internet-censorship-interference-and-control/>Today,
*Friday October 9 2015* the *Princeton Center for Information Technology
Policy <https://citp.princeton.edu/> *aka CITP will present a *Conference
on Internet Censorship, Interference, and Control
<https://citp.princeton.edu/event/conference-on-internet-censorship-interference-and-control/>
*which will examine questions like: What is the current state of internet
accessibility, and what technologies and policies can help protect
international security and human rights in this area? This conference will
explore research by both computer scientists and political scientists into
internet censorship, interference, and control. We will consider
interdisciplinary perspectives on relevant contemporary questions: What is
the state of the art in network measurement, and how can information about
social and political conditions better inform future measurements? How
should computer scientists measure and study offensive technologies, such
as China’s denial of service attacks on Github, and what role should policy
play in responding to these security threats? How extensive are national
firewalls, internet surveillance, and filter bubbles, and how should
citizens and governments respond? Speakers include *Wendy Seltzer* and *Roger
Dingledine*. The conference will be streamed live via *Princeton Media
