This week on The Conversation - the discussion about the dearth of female voices on tech conference stages rears its head ... again. This time it's about Twiistup - an LA-tech scene gathering that got heat in the blogosphere last week when a published agenda showed no women. Turns out there's a deeper story - as there always is. Twiistup organizer Patrick Vlaskovits joins Cathy to talk about it. Also this week attorney Erica Johnstone on the topic of California's SB1411 - legislation geared to make impersonating people on-line a crime, and a big one at that. Formerly known as Social Media Hour, The Conversation is a new look for some great themes. Namely - it's not about the technology . It's about what you do with it. Jumping from this basic premise, each week The Conversation's Executive Producer & Host Cathy Brooks explores the bits and bytes that are changing the way people get and share information, interact and the way in which this is fundamentally changing social and professional interactions. Each week guests ranging from up and comer entrepreneurs to seasoned influencers and everyone in between join Cathy to talk about what they do, why they do it and how their personal story fits into the mix.
