“Confluence” of law and technology, at SAARC Law 2017

A confluence is the junction of two rivers, especially rivers of approximately equal width. My session at SAARC Law 2017 is entitled Confluence of Law and Technology. The way I see it, there is no alternative but to relax the requirement that the metaphorical rivers be of equal width. Unless, of course, we define law in the Lessig manner, East Coast Code being old style ink on paper interpreted by judges law and West Coast Code being self-enforcing rules built into hardware and software.

So, anyway, I worked up a set of slides being from the tech side of the world. Whether I will be able to use them is another matter, the organizers and my audience being from the other side of the tracks.
