The Cloud, Many Clouds, and Free Expression

23 October 2013 - A Workshop on Access in Bali, Indonesia


In previous years our workshops have looked at the impact of data flows and on surveillance. As the cloud business model moves mainstream, we propose looking this year at the free-expression ramifications cloud computing.  In addition to free expression ramifications, the workshop will focus on how cross-jurisdictional privacy and security frameworks and security standards can facilitate--or hinder--cloud adoption and affect usage. As the cloud moves mainstream, we'll also look at the free-expression ramifications for businesses and for consumers in the debate on private clouds vs. public clouds.
