Public Policy and The Future of the Internet

I gave a speech yesterday to the Reference and User Library Association, a branch of the American Library Association. It focused on three critical uncertainties that will determine to some degree how the internet evolves:

  1. the adoption of the internet and its architecture
  2. the way intellectual property is treated
  3. the kind of policies and norms we development about identity, online privacy, anonymity and surveillance.
