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, with backgrounds ranging from art, law, technology, politics, media, culture, and entrepreneurship – provided their perspectives on the future of the net, and engaged with members of the audience to further the exploration of what lies ahead.
