Here’s a panel discussion I’m not going to miss next Wednesday: Futures of the Internet, at the NYU Information Law Institute and Free Culture. Normally I don’t do this, but rather than regurgitate an invitation of facebook, I’m just going to list it here with the observation that the speakers list is very impressive.
WHERE and WHEN
Wednesday, April 16, 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Vanderbilt Hall 206, NYU Law
40 Washington Square South
New York, NY
What will come of the next decade on the Internet? We often take for granted the state of the net today, but there’s no guarantee that it will remain this way. Will the digital future be dystopian, or is there a brighter outlook ahead than some may believe? Our panelists — thinkers and net visionaries — will provide their perspectives on the future of the net, with backgrounds ranging from art, law, technology, politics, media, culture, and entrepreneurship. We will tap in to each speaker’s knowledge to provide a unique vision of the digital future, and will engage with members of the audience to further the exploration of what lies ahead.
