Yale Law School Hosts A Symposium on Search Engines, Law, and Public Policy  

:: Tuesday, November 22, 2005 ::

Yale Law School is hosting Regulating Search: A Symposium on Search Engines, Law, and Public Policy on December 3, 2005.


Panel 1: The Search Space

Panel 2: Search Engines and Public Regulation

Panel 3: Search Engines and Intellectual Property

Panel 4: Search Engines and Individual Rights

This all looks fascinating to search engine devotees. For example:
"This panel will review the wide range of what search engines do and their importance in the information ecosystem. It will survey the pressures search engines face, the technologies they employ, and the constituencies they must serve. It will frame the question, to be explored throughout the day, of whether search is a matter that requires specific regulatory intervention and a special set of legal rules for its governing. In this panel, industry participants, computer scientists, and analysts will flag major trends in search engine technology and try to predict future developments, with the goal of pointing out those trends that will create new conflicts and new litigation." (bold emphasis mine.)

and ooohhh...
"This panel will discuss the possibility of direct government regulation of search functionality. Such regulation might proceed under several jurisdictional heads (e.g. antitrust, consumer protection, or telecommunications) with any of a number of possible policy goals. Where one or a few search engines achieve dominance over a particular aspect of search, the possibility of such regulation seems more imminent." (bold emphasis mine.)

I'm late in getting this news out to you (sorry, work overload!), so early rate hotel registration deadlines are long passed. However, if you live near New Haven,CT, this is a very affordable event. There is student pricing and press pass pricing (fee waived). Here are more pricing details.

I hope someone covers it and does a writeup. It looks juicy!

Ready for the Holidays? Not!

I love it when men cook.

"I tried a dry rub and bar-b-queuing the turkey one year. It tasted good but having anything finish at a predetermined time using hardwood charcoal is pretty challenging. The past few years Iíve been brining the turkey, which keeps it moist and flavorful. For those you not acquainted with brining, basically you soak the turkey for a few hours in salty broth water. The salt and broth seep into the turkey through osmosis giving it extra flavor. It also defrosts the bird cutting down on cooking time. If youíre looking to try it hereís a good turkey brine recipe to build from."

If you own a site and the holidays are your crazy time, see Days to Christmas: 33 Is your site ready? 37Signals has a list of helpful ideas to increase conversions.

And, of course, at Cre8asiteforums, We Give Thanks
