Conference to Explore the Effect of the Internet on Politics
This December, the Berkman Center at Harvard Law School will bring together political experts, activists, academics, bloggers, and interested citizens to discuss the effect of the internet on politics. The conference will take a skeptical look at the state of politics after the 2004 election and from an international perspective. Panels will focus on questions like:
- Has "citizenship" changed in the online era?
- Are online business models helpful guides for politics and political organizing?
- What international examples are promising?
- Did the web make a difference in the 2004 election?
The conference will take place December 9-11, 2004, at Harvard Law School. Visit the conference website http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/is2k4/home to learn more about the schedule of events and speakers.
Confirmed guests include Prof. Cass Sunstein, Author of Republic.com; Esther Dyson, Editor of CNet; Oh Yeon-ho, Creator of OhMyNews (South Korea); Craig Newmark, Founder of Craigslist.org; and many others.
