April 11, 2008
This will be very interesting. Note that it has been moved to April 16 (thanks to celebdu for bringing that up).

Futures of the Internet

Wed., April 16
Panel: 6:30-8pm, Reception 8-8:30pm
Vanderbilt Hall 206, NYU Law School

20 Washington Square South

Sponsored by the NYU Information Law Institute and Free Culture @ NYU

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.
