Everyone, just a quick programming note that there will be a brief hiatus here at Plagiarism Today as pack up the car and make the 8 hour drive to Austin, TX for SXSW, where, as I mentioned before, I’ll be speaking on a panel entitled “Digital Content and the Legality of Web Scraping“.
As with the previous two times I’ve spoken at SXSW, I’ll be teaming up with attorney Katie Sunstrom and we will be joined by Rami Essaid, CEO of Distil Networks, a technology company that’s fighting scraping on major websites (and less major ones such as this one). We will also be moderated by Distil’s Director of Product Marketing, Orion Cassetto, who has been doing an amazing job putting this together.
It’s a great panel and it should be a great talk If you’re at SXSW and want to attend the panel, I’d love to see you there, the information you need is as follows:
Title: Digital Content and the Legality of Web Scraping
Date: Tuesday, March 15
Time: 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM
Location: JW Marriott, Salon 5, 110 E 2nd St.
While I’d love to see you there and will be available to talk afterward, if you’re in the area at all between the 11th and the 15th, I’d love to speak with you so feel free to send me a message on Twitter or via Email and I’ll see what I can do.
In the meantime I’ll be on a few day’s hiatus because of the conference. There will be no 3 Counts or others posts (save a podcast I’m prepping) between now and the 16th. By the 17th, we should be back to our regular schedule.
So adieu for the moment but we will be back soon enough, most likely with lots of great stuff picked up from SXSW. Hope to see you there!
