What I Did at SXSWInteractive: Hackers in the Media!

First, I’d like to point out that I’m posting this blog entry FROM A PLANE IN THE SKY.  How awesome is this particular slice of the future?

SXSW was, as usual, awesome and exhausting and loud.  I had a great time delivering my talk on depictions of hackers in the media and how that affects computer crime legislation and jurisprudence.  The audience was engaged and sharp, with excellent questions.  There’s a recording of the talk floating around somewhere, but until I find it, please check out my slides from the presentation.  There will also be a paper coming out of this research, so stay tuned for that as well.

EDIT: Audio from my talk is now up! (and when I say that the CFAA was passed in the mid nineties, what I meant to say was it was passed the mid eighties.  Oops. ::facepalm:: )
