Shaping the Future of the Next Internet
Britain's Oxford Union is hosting a one day public conference entitled
The Politics of Code: Shaping the Future of the Next Internet.
Organised by the Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy, University
of Oxford, it's slated for February 6, 2003.
"The Internet is at a crossroads, critical choices will be made in the
coming months about the Internet's architecture that will shape the Internet
for years to come," says the web site here.
"PCMLP is therefore convening a conference in Oxford to not only identify
what those critical choices are, and to discuss in an innovative
cross-disciplinary set-up of practitioners and academics how we can shape
the future of the next Internet."
Speakers will include Larry Lessig and Esther Dyson, founding chairman of
ICANN. They'll discuss the key choices that need to be made on privacy,
security, access, openness and control in the design of Internet technology
and Internet Governance, says their PCMLP.
The Union was founded in 1823 as a forum for the free exchange of ideas.
The great debating chamber, where the event will take place, has seen such
speakers as Winston Churchill, Mother Teresa and Kermit the Frog.
In October, RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) boss Hilary
'Reach Out' Rosen was soundly defeated in a debate, there. The proposition?
"This House believes that 'the free music mentality is a threat to the
future of music'."
