Watch Live Oct 1 - Dyn’s Techtoberfest: Internet Trends, Security, Net Neutrality and More

On Thursday, Oct 1, 2015, from 9:30am-4:30pm US EDT (UTC-4), Dyn will be holding their “TechToberFest” event in Manchester, NH, and also streaming the video live for anyone interested.
There are a great set of speakers and a solid agenda. As I wrote on the Internet Society blog (”Bandwidth, Beer and Bratwurst—Speaking Security at Dyn’s TechToberFest”) I’ll be part of the security panel from 3-4pm US EDT… and we who are on the panel are excited to participate just for the conversation that we are going to have! It should be fun!

If you are interested in the type of topics that are frequently written about here on CircleID, I’d encourage you to join in on the live stream to catch some of the sessions. There will also be social media updates using the hashtags #TechToberFest and #DynTTF.
Here’s what the current agenda looks like:
