Feedback from participants:

“Topics that were addressed were very informative, up to date, and thought provoking. The sessions helped me realize ways in which technology is abused that I was not aware of before.”

“I thought this was a wonderful conference. It was great to hear from Google, Verizon, Facebook, and FireFox but to also hear from those in the legal profession.”

“I really enjoyed the variety of key note speakers, workshops, panel discussions and tech demonstrations. I loved that many of the technology company representatives present were asking questions of advocates about how the companies could most effectively create change.”

“The overall tone of the event allowed for participants of different backgrounds, knowledge and experience levels to participate equally. The topics were exceptional—I have never attended any conference where there weren’t at least a couple of duds and this wasn't the case.”
