    VIDEO: Bali and Beyond: An Internet Governance Forum Debrief #igf @isocdc 

    Bali and BeyondOn Friday November 8 2013 the Internet Society Washington DC Chapter presented a forum – Bali and Beyond: An Internet Governance Forum Debrief – at the Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center, Washington, DC.

    Late last month, more than a thousand delegates from almost a hundred countries gathered for four days at the eighth Internet Governance Forum in Bali, Indonesia, to discuss a wide range of issues related to the future of the Internet–from online privacy to management of domain names to NSA surveillance to human rights in cyberspace. Much of the discussion in Bali revolved around a proposal by ICANN and the Brazilian government to hold a high-level conference on Internet issues in Brazil in late April or early May. At this event more than a dozen IGF participants shared their observations and experiences and participated in a public forum. It was webcast live via the Internet Society Chapters Channel.

    About

    The event will tackle the complex implications of recently revealed government surveillance programs around the world.

    The Internet Society and others have expressed concern that policies that result in the unwarranted collection, storage, and potential correlation of user data undermine many of the key principles and relationships of trust upon which the global Internet is based. The Internet Society notes that information about a startling number of programs by governments around the world has emerged in recent weeks; developments that we believe will have a chilling effect on the growth of the Internet and the realization of its full potential as a trusted medium for free expression and creativity.

    This forum will examine how to balance objectives for openness, global interoperability, and security in an online world and whether the vision of an open, innovative Internet can persist in an environment of online surveillance and data collection.  Can we achieve a balance between national security, privacy, and free expression or do users have to be willing to compromise?

    “It’s clear that recent reports about a government surveillance program have driven a strong public reaction, with reverberations and implications for Internet users, architecture, governance and more,” said Paul Brigner, Regional Bureau Director, North America, of the Internet Society. “This event will provide an open forum for dialogue so that all interested stakeholders understand the issues at hand and what is at stake regarding interrelated principles of privacy, security, reliability, and user choice.”

    About

    When many of us first logged onto the Internet, having a megabit connection seemed impossible. Today, network speeds a thousand times faster are both possible and affordable and broadband networks drive productivity and economic growth. In January, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski announced the Gigabit City Challenge to have at least one gigabit network in all 50 states by 2015. Currently, there are 13 gigabit city networks in various phases of operation, allowing innovators to develop next-generation applications. How are they using these networks? How will businesses, governments, and schools leverage them to increase job growth, innovation and productivity? What will it take for these local projects to grow and meet the challenge?

    VIDEO: The Geopolitics of Internet Governance @ISOCDC @CSIS #IGF #ITU #geowebgov #WCIT 

    On Thursday May 23 2013 the Internet Society’s Greater Washington Chapter (ISOC DC) along withe the Center for Strategic and International Studies presented The Geopolitics of Internet Governance. The international landscape calls for a more compelling narrative for internet governance than the US–centric one inherited from the ‘90s. Will it be possible to accommodate non-western state’s (this is much more than China and Russia) desire for a larger role for governments without throwing the multi-stakeholder model and (more importantly) human rights overboard? A distinguished panel pondered this question and more. The event was webcast live by the Internet Society’s North America Bureau.

    Webcast: The Elections and Internet Policy #isocdc #netneutrality #broadband #fcc 

    ISOC-DCOn Thursday September 20 2012, the Internet Society’s Washington DC Chapter (ISOC-DC) will webcast live its discussion “The Elections and Internet Policy“.
    The 2012 Presidential and Congressional elections are less than two months away. While Internet policy is not a “hot button” issue, the platforms for both parties devote paragraphs to Internet issues such as Net Neutrality, cybersecurity, and Internet freedom–and there are significant differences.

    Join us for a lively roundtable discussion on questions such as: How would Internet policy change in a Romney Administration? What will be the most pressing issues facing the President and the Congress in 2013? If the Republicans win the Senate, will we see new approaches to telecommunications and Internet policy?

    What: The Elections and Internet Policy
    Where: Google DC, 1101 New York Ave., N.W., Second floor, WDC
