With almost two billion people online, the Internet is a catalyst for boundless creativity and growth. But the decisions we make in the coming months and years will determine whether it remains a global platform for innovation and expression for people everywhere. Join us on June 14 as we set the agenda for the future of an open Internet. We’ll identify and examine the critical decisions that will shape the future of the Internet:
- Who will help define the Internet’s evolution?
- What role should government and private industry play?
- How do we provide greater bandwidth and access?
- What does online privacy mean in the age of Facebook and Wikileaks?
This is a unique opportunity to network with the thought leaders and policy makers who are designing the global networks of tomorrow and help develop the policies that will drive future Internet innovation. Space is limited so it is advisable to register a.s.a.p.
