Digital Social Responsibility: Searching for Ethics on the Internet (June 7, NYC)

The Japan Society of New York is hosting a very interesting event titled “Digital Social Responsibility: Searching for Ethics on the Internet” on Thursday, June 7, 2007 from 2:00 to 6:00 PM. This seminar will feature keynote speaker Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist.org and will bring together experts in search engine technology, online business, internet-enabled social networking, and internet privacy to discuss the ethical and social challenges in the for- and not-for-profit sectors triggered by the rapid diffusion of digital technology and the ubiquity of internet protocol. Topics of discussion will include:

  • Future accessibility and democratization of the Internet
  • The creation and support of a borderless, end-user-driven Internet, in Japan, the United States, China and elsewhere
  • Transparency and accountability
  • Striking the balance between protecting personal freedoms and squelching fraudulent online activity

Unfortunately, my travel schedule prevents my attendance, but I hope others will participate and report on the conversation.
