The New Netroots: Getting the Web We Want

Recent success of the Internet rights activism shows that issues like copyright reform, universal access to open networks and online privacy resonate deeply with people in the U.S. and around the globe. The hacker collective Anonymous has mobilized an unknown army of online activists in defense of Internet freedoms worldwide; pro-democracy dissidents across the Middle East and North Africa have used the Internet as a vital tool for organizing protest and fighting censorship; the death of Aaron Swartz has amplified support for his fight to free knowledge and make it accessible to all, and new coalitions of organizers and technologists are building community networks to connect people in the poorest communities. The community is diverse and widespread but do we really get along? We’ll hear from representatives from each of these movements in a frank discussion about common values and objectives as the broader Internet freedom community gains momentum.
