In this episode, Foundry Fellow, Dyllan Brown-Bramble sits down with Gabrielle Hibbert, a Fellow at the Decentralized Future Council and Hillary Brill an Adjunct Professor and Senior Fellow Institute for Technology Law & Policy at Georgetown Law to discuss the work of the Decentralized Future Council, the future of Web3 law and policy, and why early-career professionals should get up to speed on it.

Gabrielle Hibbert is the security and privacy fellow for the Decentralized Future Council. Gabrielle started her career in public policy after working across both Capitol Hill and various non-profit and consultant agencies across the DMV. In 2018, she began researching blockchain and programming smart contracts after learning about decentralized ledger technologies (DLT). In 2020, she co-lead the College of William & Mary’s Blockchain Lab, under the direction of the primary investigator and co-founder, Troy Wiipongwii. She is currently the Government and Policy Officer at Least Authority, a security consulting and privacy firm based in Berlin, Germany. She earned her M.A. in management and policy at Brandeis University and her B.A. in international relations from the College of William & Mary. Gabrielle is based in Washington DC.

For more than 25 years, HTB Strategies principal and founder Hillary Brill, has been shaping, building, and teaching in all aspects of policy-making including media, legal, grassroots, and legislative practices. As communications and technology counsel with Covington & Burlington, Brill drafted one of the first primers on Internet Policy. Pursuing her desire to be closer to the policymaking process, Brill left legal practice to work with technology leader Congressman Rick Boucher. For the past seven years, she has shared her unique perspective and policymaking experience with the next generation of technology leaders as a Professor at Georgetown law, her alma mater, where she developed a curriculum about practicing policy at the intersection of technology and legislation.  Brill also was chosen as Practitioner-in-Residence at American University Washington College of Law focusing on technology and intellectual property issues.
