“Lessons from 18 Months in Government”


UW CSE Ph.D. alum Ed Felten – Director of Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy, and Professor of Computer Science and of Public Affairs there, recently returned to Princeton after 18 months as the first Chief Technologist of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

Today Ed delivered the keynote at the 22nd USENIX Security Symposium:  “Dr. Felten Goes To Washington: Lessons from 18 Months in Government.”

One of these days, the video will be online, presumably here.  Meanwhile, you’ll have to content yourself with the three photos here, as Ed progressively strips down from full DC battle armor to an audience-appropriate geeky T-shirt over the course of his presentation.
