ASN: Discussion – Virtually There or There Virtually? Are we still waiting for the Virtual World?
Register in advance for this Event
People are coming together to work, play and share information, but increasingly on very different terms. We see opportunity and new forms of sharing taking shape, peer-to-peer decentralised networks, individuals taking responsibility for their own data security, and different more eco-friendly ways of using power. But what is emerging and is it ‘good’?
The Internet’s underlying protocols (TCP/IP) were designed to decentralise sharing and to get information to its destination, come what may, nuclear war, dictators overthrown; it was supposed to be the ultimate Pony Express. But the very success of the Internet is now threatening its existence. Countries are looking inward, political unions breaking apart and long-time established powers faltering.
So this is truly a time of opportunity to make technology in a form that respects individuals rights to privacy and one that is built with the welfare of the planet, and redistribution of wealth included in the equation.
Join us to discuss:
- Owning your own data and understanding where to place your trust.
- Seeing new measures of value emerging
- The demise of the Internet as we know it
- The re-emergence of distributed decentralised business models
