Note that the CSL Colloquia are a great opportunity to meet with all
sorts of folks on all aspects of technology.  The faculty, particularly
John Wharton, are very aware that they offer an opening for the public,
and the range of viewpoints presented is large (Lessig spoke at the CSL
a year ago).

Target the _speakers_ and _philosophy_, not the program itself.

That said -- go forth and make a joyous noise ;-)
