DESCRIPTION
Forward & back: Six conversations about the internet's past decade & the coming one

The social web was born 10 years ago with the unveiling of the first iPhone, Twitter's debut at SXSW, Facebook growth beyond college dorms, & the first Presidential debate on YouTube. Also in 2007 Knight Foundation announced the winners of the first Knight News Challenge, which sought to find & support bold experiments that use the digital world to connect people to the real world. We carried a sense of optimism about the potential for technology to make the world a better place. Today, that early sense of optimism has faded as concerns about bullying, false information & the loss of the public square have risen.

To explore what we've learned about the internet over the past decade & what we might expect in 2027, we've invited 13 entrepreneurs, journalists & scholars for an afternoon of dialogue. We hope you can join us.

In addition, Susan Crawford of Harvard Law School & Cardozo Law School will give a keynote on the state of the internet.
