WEBCAST FRI/SAT: After the Digital Tornado w/ @kwerb @superwuster @hnissenbaum and others #atdt #fcc

After the Digital TornadoOn Friday/Saturday November 17-18 2017 Kevin Werbach and the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania will host After the Digital Tornado in Philadelphia PA. Twenty years ago, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission issued Kevin Werbach’s working paper, Digital Tornado, one of the first examinations by a government agency of the transformative potential of the internet. Today we find ourselves in a world where little remains untouched by the wave of digital connectivity. Yet fundamental questions remain unresolved, and even more serious new questions have emerged. This major academic conference will examine these questions. Speakers include Tim Wu, Sally Wentworth, Yochai Benkler, Helen Nissenbaum, Bruce Schneier, Joel Reidenberg, Gigi Sohn, & Christopher Yoo. An edited volume of essays based on the presentations will be published by Cambridge University Press. A live webcast will be available via the Internet Society Livestream Channel.
