Zittrain debate at New America Foundation (11/6, 3:30)
(previous | next)

JZIf you're here in D.C. next Thursday, you might want to drop by the New America Foundation to watch Jonathan Zittrain and me go at it about his important new book, The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It. Our debate will take place on Thursday, November 6th from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. at New America Foundation headquarters (1630 Connecticut Ave, NW, 7th Floor). My old friend (but frequent intellectual sparring partner) Michael Calabrese will also be speaking. Michael is the Director of New America's "Wireless Future Program" and one of the all-around nicest guys in the world of tech policy. You can RSVP for the event here.

I've been quite critical of the thesis that Jonathan sets forth in his book, and I have discussed my reservations in a lengthy book review and a series of follow-up essays here and elsewhere. (Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). We've also debated his book on the an NPR-Boston affiliate station if you care to hear a preview of our debate next week. That show is online here.

I encourage you to join us for what promises to be a very interesting discussion. As I pointed out in my original review of his book, if you have never had the chance to hear Jonathan speak, you're in for a real treat. He is, bar none, the most entertaining tech policy wonk in the world.

Again, RSVP here.
