Freedom to Connect 2009: The Emerging Internet Economy

I’ll be speaking on Homes with Tails, or Measurement Lab, or something else. In any case, I’ll be there, and you should too.

F2C: Who, What, When, Where, Why

WHO: F2C is a meeting of people engaged with Internet connectivity and all that it enables, including

    * vendors,

    * customers,

    * regulators,

    * legislators,

    * analysts,

    * financiers,

    * citizens and

    * co-creators.

F2C is shaped by universal connectivity and the plunging capital requirements of information production, which, in turn, are changing many of our fundamental economic and social assumptions.

WHAT: A two-day meeting inside the beltway where the creators of the future of the Internet meet to engage in mutual learning and exploration.

WHEN: 8:00 AM on March 30 through 5:00 PM on March 31, 2009. List of confirmed speakers and bare-bones program here.

WHERE: AFI Silver Theatre, Silver Spring MD. More travel, lodging and venue details here.

WHY: It is written that Freedom of the Press is only for those with presses. The Internet now makes Freedom of the Press available to about 3,000,000,000 people, almost half of Earth’s humans. At F2C: Freedom to Connect, we explore how this changes the fundamental operating assumptions of society, and ask, “What next?”
