Tweets from MIT privacy panel

Some of what the audience tweeted last night during our panel on privacy last night at MIT...

I had a great time last night at MIT, where I sat on the panel for a discussion about privacy in the business world. Video was taken of the event, and I'll run it here when it's available. Meantime, I thought I'd share some of what the audience tweeted during the discussion. When I post the video, it might be fun to watch while reviewing these tweets.

Trish Fleming @trishfmit:

@BillBrenner70 and Anup Ghosh. Compliance does not equal security#MITEF @Mitefcmb
