Abstract: This program explored both the promise and peril of an era in which free-flowing information raises issues of security, privacy, ownership, in which the response of governments has included both improved access and obstacles to transparency, and in which the use of social media has been been able to breach the walls erected by repressive regimes in some places but not in others. The program featured a panel of accomplished faculty members (Bederson, Khamis and Jaeger) with expertise ranging from e-government to mobile computing to the role of social media in the unfolding "Arab Spring." Following their presentations, the speakers discussed the issues of transparency and boundaries with "Visiting Future-ists" Chowdhury, Czerwinski and Russell.
Description: Sheri Parks, Associate Professor of American Studies, served as the panel’s moderator. Ira Chinoy and Allison Druin, co-directors of the Future of Information Alliance, served as hosts.
