I can't go to this because I'll be at a graduation ceremony,
unless some people want to split the cost of a cab ride to Stanford
from Berkeley immediately afterward.

However, this is the famous "censored talk" that Felten couldn't
present at the Information Hiding Workshop because of industry legal
threats.  Therefore, don't miss it!
