Declan:

This June 17 event in SF may be of interest to Politechnicals in the Bay 
Area.  I'll be speaking about identification, no doubt incorporating 
observations from my testimony in Congress tomorrow (House Homeland 
Security Committee) and the second meeting of the DHS Data Privacy and 
Integrity Advisory Committee in Boston next week.

Jim Harper
Director of Information Policy Studies
The Cato Institute



You're invited to a seminar luncheon cosponsored by the Cato Institute 
and The Economist, "Liberty, Technology, and Prosperity," on Friday, 
June 17 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Fairmont hotel in San 
Francisco.  The seminar luncheon will feature nationally acclaimed Bay 
Area radio talk show host Gene Burns and best-selling author Joel Garreau.

Joel Garreau will discuss the topic of his new book, Radical Evolution: 
The Promise and Peril of Enhancing Our Minds, Our Bodies -- and What It 
Means to Be Human, which examines possible implications of technological 
advances in such fields as genetics, robotics, information and 
nanotechnologies on human evolution.  Wired editor-at-large Kevin Kelly 
writes about Radical Evolution, "It isn't often an author gets to herald 
the biggest news in the last 10,000 years. But you'll get the full, 
uncensored, mind-blowing report here in this entertaining and 
surprisingly deep book."  And, I'm sure you will enjoy listening to the 
thoughtful and at times spirited remarks by Gene Burns. In addition, 
there will be brief presentations by Cato's president Ed Crane and our 
privacy expert Jim Harper.

The registration fee is $50 per person and $350 for a table of eight.

As a convenience you can register online at
