Deven Desai

Deven Desai is an associate professor of law and ethics at the Scheller College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology. He was also the first, and to date, only Academic Research Counsel at Google, Inc., and a Visiting Fellow at Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy. He is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley and the Yale Law School. Professor Desai’s scholarship examines how business interests, new technology, and economic theories shape privacy and intellectual property law and where those arguments explain productivity or where they fail to capture society’s interest in the free flow of information and development. His work has appeared in leading law reviews and journals including the Georgetown Law Journal, Minnesota Law Review, Notre Dame Law Review, Wisconsin Law Review, and U.C. Davis Law Review.

    On the other hand: it’s quite interesting to discover old handwritten notebooks, term papers with profs’ handwritten comments and such 20 or 30 (or getting on to 40) years later, when moving or just poking around in chaotic closets. It’s surprising, nostalgic, entertaining, good for introspection, and easily shared with those you’re close with. OTOH 20 years from now, my iPad will just be an inert piece of metal and glass with an irretrievably dead battery and a charger long misplaced. Or it will be like my 3 Sony CLIOs for which maybe I still have a charger (they’re only 10-12 years old, too young for entropy to kick in full-force) — but for which I can no longer run the necessary support software. As for cloud storage — yeah, let’s see how long some of those companies stay in business, even assuming their security is reliable during their lifetimes.
