What should be the mission of universities in cyberspace? What can universities contribute to the future of the internet? How can our educational institutions promote ideals of free exchange of information yet cope with the complex intellectual property challenges presented by the net?
A group of academic experts, University professors, administrators, and innovators met up to discuss solutions to this very issue at a conference entitled University and Cyberspace: Reshaping Knowledge Institutions for the Networked Age earlier this summer.
Charles Nesson was one of those participants. He joined David Weinberger in the studio to talk about how the University can tackle these challenges head on.
