Berkman@10 Is Here!

The final event to celebrate Berkman’s 10 year anniversary is here, and there are at least three events that those interested in the Internet and Democracy Project won’t want to miss. You don’t need to be in Cambridge, since many of these events will be webcast, live-streamed, recorded, blogged and otherwise accessible online. The Internet and Democracy team will try to blog as many sessions as possible. A number of social tools will also be used to allow those remotely, as well as attendees, to be part of the conversation.

First up is tonight’s event on Civic Engagement and the Youth Vote in the 2008 Elections co-hosted with the Institute of Politics at the Kennedy School.

Tomorrow, John Palfrey will lead a discussion on the Internet and Politics, which will be webcast from Ames court room, and draws on many of the examples, hypotheses, theory and research of the I&D project.

On Friday, among several of the interesting “Openness” sessions will be a discussion on Open Media that will be facilitated by Persephone Miel, Jake Shapiro, Dan Gillmor and Bruce Etling. Check out the wiki to see what themes will be debated.

Be sure to follow along online and be part of what promises to be an amazing discussion on the “Future of the Internet” over the next few days.
