event: FOSI Screening of PBS "Digital Nation" Documentary at NCTA
(previous | next)

A few weeks ago, I posted my thoughts on the outstanding new PBS Frontline program called "Digital Nation: Life on the Virtual Frontier." Produced by Rachel Dretzin and Douglas Rushkoff, the 90-minute special touched on several themes we have debated here through the years including: (1) concerns about information overload and multitasking; (2) the role of computers and digital technology in education & learning; and (3) the nature and impact of virtual reality and virtual worlds on real-world life and culture.

If you missed the program, you're in luck. The Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI), in conjunction with the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA), is holding a screening of the documentary this Thursday, Feb. 25th beginning at 10:00am. The screening will take place at the NCTA Theater, located at 25 Massachusetts Avenue, NW (near Union Station).

After the viewing ends, Rachel Dretzin will be answering some questions about the program. And the folks at FOSI were kind enough to ask me to be there to provide some commentary on the program along with Kathy Brown, Senior Vice President, Public Policy Development and Corporate Responsibility at Verizon.

They're almost out of seats, so if you are interested you should RSVP right away to: events@fosi.org [All details here.]

9. Freud rarely talks about his art. He almost always refused interviews and, aged 81 at the time the conversations in this book were recorded (2003-4), it had taken him his 49 year career, he says, to "know that the main point about painting is paint: that it is all about paint."
