Lollapalooza is back this year with a three-day festival under the hot Chicago August sun.
The Computer Freedom & Privacy (CFP) conference is hitting DC next week with FOUR days of hot geek on geek debating action.
Lollapalooza will feature rock, hip-hop, alt-country, house, garage, electro, punk and dancehall.
CFP will throw down with all the most kickin' tech policy genres like Net Neutrality, privacy, digital content policy, Internet governance, and cyber security.
Senator Patrick Leahy, Congressman Joe Barton, Stewart Baker of DHS, PFF's Jim Delong, Google's Andrew McLaughlin, and Web 1.0-gone-2.0 guy Jonah Seiger will all be waving their arms in the air like they just don't care at the L'efant Plaza Hotel.
[Oddly, former Tsunami and Grenadine lead singer, Jenny Toomey, will be on a CFP panel and not on the Chicago stage. (She's actually the executive director of the Future of Music coalition)].
BTW, as I think about it, Lollapalooza organizer Perry Farrell would fit right in at a CFP event. Maybe we can get him to spin at the 463 Happy Hour on Thursday night.
After the jump, our panel picks...
