Video of the opening plenary of last week's Computers, Freedom, and Privacy conference has been posted on Youtube:

A Clash of Civilizations? The EU and US Negotiate the Future of Privacy

There were a few last-minute changes to the panel, with the final lineup as below (there was also a recorded video presentation by Viviane Reding, Vice President of the European Commission):

Panelists (left to right):

Moderator (far right): Barry Steinhardt: Founder, Friends of Privacy USA; Senior Advisor and Trustee, Privacy International; Member of the DHS Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee

During the question and answer session, I was asked about my analysis of the leaked draft of the proposed EU-USA "agreement" on transfers of PNR data. There's more background info here.

See also Wendy Grossman's report on the opening plenary and the rest of the first day of CFP, and her other reports from CFP.

For more background, see my testimony at hearings last year on this issue before the Canadian House of Commons and the European Parliament.

I'll be travelling (first to Detroit for the biennial delegate assembly of the National Writers Union, where I co-chair the NWU Book Division, and then to Boston for a family visit. I'll have more CFP 2011 links once I get home after the 4th of July, and once more video is uploaded.
