¬ Digital Rights Management Symposium: Fight the power! Or kill those commies! Well, with an Electronic Frontier Foundation member on the panel, this 2:30 PM symposium in SF's UC Hastings law school will be a touch progressive.
¬ National Idea-to-Product Competition: College teams face off for a $15,000 prize at the SJSU College of Business. Sounds pretty sober; I recommend a follow-up drink at San Francisco's St. Stupid's Day Parade After-Afterparty.
¬ John Perry Barlow: Is Cyberspace Still Anti-sovereign?: Was it ever? Berkeley School of Information, 4 PM.
¬ Stirr mixer: Speakers include Sean Savage, coiner of the term "flash mob." He'll be presenting his company, PlaceSite. Also represented: Meetro, Prosper, Inkling Markets, and Ookles.
¬ The Evolution and Future of Micropayments: Execs from Visa, PayPal, and Bitpass (the little payment site that could) explain where micropayments are going (other than "to webcomic artists").
