Next week, the evening of Wednesday October 12 at AOL Ventures, the NYC Mobile Forum and Location-Based App Meetups will hold a panel on “Privacy in Mobile and Location.” Each of these groups has about 1,000 members, primarily mobile applications developers and entrepreneurs in New York City who are interested in promoting innovation in mobile and location based apps. I’ll be moderating. The panelists include a renowned venture capitalist at Union Square Ventures (Albert Wegner), the head of a DC advocacy group for developers with some larger sponsors (Morgan Reed of Association for Competitive Technology), the head of policy and strategy for a company leading some self-regulatory efforts in online advertising (Colin O’Malley of Evidon), and a serial entrepreneur (Bob Walczak of Bump Equity).
It’ll be a great panel. Amanda Moskowitz, who brilliantly runs NYC Mobile, asked me to moderate, and I’m looking forward to a great discussion on some important, if challenging, questions.
