Blockchain technology - good, bad, or somewhere in between?

Blockchain technology is taking the world by storm. From banking to health care, many tout blockchain as a cure-all. Others think blockchain will make matters worse. In between are those who see practical applications but caution on addictive use.

In this presentation, Ryan E. Long, will provide an overview of blockchain: technology and associated digital currencies; practical applications, particularly in the health and life sciences; and issues associated with the technology and its open source methods. Attendees will gain an understanding of blockchain and the debate over its use.

Ryan E. Long is a Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society non-resident fellow and a cooperating attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation in San Francisco. Ryan E. Long represents technology, media, and design clients with their intellectual property, litigation, and related corporate matters. Previously, he was a litigator with the New York City office of Milberg LLP, among others.
