Keynote speaker at the CCIA 2005 Technology Summit

I have been invited to be a keynote speaker at the Computer and Communications Industry Association's 2005 Technology Summit October 25-26 at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel in lovely Dana Point, California.

The topic of my presentation will be broadband deployment differences between the US and Japan (focusing on Japan, as most of the audience is expected to be relatively familiar with the US).

What will be especially interesting to me are the other talks, which are in general outside of my particular areas of expertise. There will be a panel talking about the Grokster decision, reform of the US patent system, controversial authors, Lawrence Lessig from Stanford Law, and all sorts of open source / open system debates.

It sounds fascinating. And the resort hotel looks pretty nice, too. Maybe I'll see some celebrities in the audience.
