The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It: A short series of two seminars given by Professor Jonathan Zittrain

Department of Law/ Department of Media & Communication Seminar Series

Date: Wednesday 5 March 2008
Time: 4- 5.30pm
Venue
: D502, Clement House
Speakers: Professor Jonathan Zittrain

The Internet is primed for a meltdown-and the most obvious cures are just as bad. The engine that has catapulted the Internet from backwater to ubiquity is sputtering precisely because of its runaway success. With the unwitting help of its users, the generative Internet is on a path to a lockdown, ending its cycle of innovation - and facilitating unsettling new kinds of control.

Jonathan Zittrain holds the Chair in Internet Governance and Regulation at the University of Oxford and is a Principal of the Oxford Internet Institute.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
