Introducing Guest Blogger Ryan Calo
I’m delighted to introduce Ryan Calo who will be guest blogging with us in the month of August. No doubt, our readers are familiar with Calo’s work and ideas. We have featured his original work in our Bright Ideas segments and our posts (and here). We feel lucky to have him aboard. Calo is the research director for privacy and robotics at Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society. Calo’s research and teaching interests include privacy, administrative law, intellectual property, and cyberlaw. His most recent project attempts to resuscitate mandatory notice as a regulatory strategy in the context of consumer protection.
Calo is a frequent commenter on privacy, Internet law, and the legal issues surrounding driverless cars, drones, and other robotic technologies. His work has appeared in major news outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and NPR. He co-chairs (with Matthew Henshon) the American Bar Association’s Committee on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.
Calo received his JD cum laude from Michigan Law School and his AB in Philosophy from Dartmouth College. Prior to joining Stanford Law School in 2008, he worked as an associate in the D.C. office of Covington & Burling, LLP and clerked for the Honorable R. Guy Cole, Jr. on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
Some of Calo’s recent publications are:
Against Notice Skepticism, 87 Notre Dame Law Review (forthcoming 2012)
