Larisa Mann, AKA DJ Ripley, discusses issues and dynamics of metadata and digitized music that will be addressed by her SXSW 2011 Panel of 5:00 p.m. on March 14th. Larisa is a dj and a journalist, as well as a Phd/JD candidate at UC Berkeley Law School's Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program.

She is generally interested in grounding property rights debates in empirical research, and is specifically concerned with the dynamics of enclosure movements and struggles over political/economic power. In her earlier work for the Samuelson Clinic for Law, Technology and Public Policy, Larisa focused on issues of privacy in public places and the embedding of values/policy in technology design. The implications of networked life (daily life permeated by technology and the internet) in forming and informing our shared concepts of rights are comprised within another strand of Larisa’s enquiries. In recent years, she has been a columnist for the progressive youth news site WireTap, a resident DJ at Surya Dub, voted "Best Club Night in San Francisco 2007" by readers of the East Bay Express. Larisa was voted "Best Dance DJ" in the SF Bay Guardian's Readers Poll of 2008.

She I continued her research in the Jamaican Diaspora in New York, London and Toronto, Canada, and in Spring 2010 Larisa was appointed as a Berkeley Empirical Legal Studies Research Fellow.
