Freeing the Internet: How Hard Can It Be?

The Internet began as a way of sharing information - but also as a way to subvert the top-down design of earlier networks. Much of the early 1990s hype dwelt on the notion that the Internet could not be controlled by governments or corporate interests. 

However maps of the Internet tell a different story - and help explain why Internet traffic has been so easy to spy on. Keeping the Internet free and open will require technology, law, and policy, working together. Can it be done?

Join ORG Edinburgh on Monday July 14th for a talk on the evolution of the internet from Wendy M. Grossman - an award-winning journalist who for more than 20 years has covered the border wars between cyberspace and real life.

The event is free to attend and will be followed by an informal Q&A discussion, so as always anyone is welcome to join.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
