Hey there What’s Next readers! Hope you all had a great holiday. I’m still out myself, but wanted to share a fascinating conversation I had with none other than Stanford Law’s Jen King about privacy concerns surrounding commercial DNA collection (think 23andMe—a company on which King did quite a bit of research). We also have news on the SEC’s legal setback this week in its push to treat an initial coin offering as a security. My colleague Nate Robson has also been kind enough to wrangle some links to news you can use (and may have missed) around tech in law.

As always, drop me a line at [email protected] or @IanMichaelLopez. Enjoy, and see you next week!
