Elihu Katz Colloquium: Is an “ethical” internet possible? | Annenberg School for Communication

November 19 @ 12:00 pm
How can we ethically engage a military-derived technology that has infiltrated every aspect of our lives from refrigerators to furniture? The weaponizing potential of the internet was part and partial to its initial conceit yet this history is often forgotten and therefore remains unconnected to the current violence that this life changing technology has enabled around the world.
