Futures of the Internet – April 16 – NYU

ISOC-NY is proud to be a co-sponsor of a colloquium at NYU this coming Wednesday April 16 – Futures of the Internet.

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.

Wed., April 16
Panel: 6:30-8pm, Reception 8-8:30pm
