We’re heading down to Austin later this week to eat breakfast burritos, talk tech policy, and soak up all that SXSW Interactive has to offer.
John Paul Farmer (@johnpaulfarmer) will discuss Visas, Immigration, and the Tech Industry, an issue that’s been in the news as recently as President Obama’s big TechHire Initiative announcement yesterday. John will be joined by representatives from the White House’s U.S. Digital Service team, the Departments of State, and the Department of Homeland Security for a discussion about how they are working in the U.S. and abroad to ensure that talented workers come to the United States.
(at the JW Marriott, Salon 1, 110 E 2nd St, Austin, TX from 12:30-1:30PM on Saturday, March 14)
And I (@mstem) will join peers from MIT Media Lab and Meetup to discuss the critical role trust plays on online platforms. You can check out a preview of our conversation in the Twitter chat we held with the MIT Alumni Association today.
