A wide-ranging panel on public policy issues, “Protecting the Internet Economy,” was moderated by Michael Petricone, senior vice president of government affairs at CTA and a member of ALA’s Public Policy Advisory Council. Panelists included Rachel Wolbers, policy director of Engine; Austin Carson, executive director of TechFreedom; Nuala O’Connor, president and CEO of Center for Democracy and Technology; and Sasha Moss, technology policy federal affairs manager at R Street Institute. They spoke about technology’s role in democracy, net neutrality, and the roles of the FCC and the Federal Trade Commission. Another popular topic was what the US regulatory framework should look like, given that technology moves faster than Congress’s ability to make new laws.
