What is the structure of the vast World Wide Web?  Who owns the wires? Who controls access?  As education, creativity and science become more dependent on this technology, it is crucial that people globally participate in the potection and development of open infrastructure and a democratic base for Internet governance.

To explore infrastructure and governance, and stake back the claims for free speech, this workshop will include:

  • Report back from DeeDee Halleck on ICANN–the “multi-stake holder” world of domain regulation.
  • Report Back from Steve Pierce and David Banks on Freedom to Connect: public nets and access

 

 

Organized by legendary media activitst DeeDee Halleck, as part of the Changing the Climate: (r)Evolution for social and environmental justice.
