Why Are Dogs Special?

presented by Clive Wynne

We real­ized there was noth­ing spe­cial about dogs when it came to their intel­lect. Dogs were just doing what any ani­mal would that had been raised around peo­ple and is com­plete­ly depen­dent on peo­ple for the ful­fill­ment of all of its needs. Dogs pay close atten­tion to every­thing peo­ple do that pro­duces an out­come that mat­ters to the dog. There’s no spe­cial intel­li­gence involved in doing that.

After the Next Attack: Terrorism in the Trump Era

presented by Saud Al-Zaid

My pre­dic­tion was that there would be some form of an attack in the United States or pos­si­bly in the for­eign ter­ri­to­ries or inter­ests. My talk would have been a break­down or dis­sec­tion and con­tex­tu­al­iza­tion of the event. And of course, so far in the Trump admin­is­tra­tion there’s no attack. Well, at least no real ones. Some of us might remem­ber Bowling Green. 

The True Costs of Misinformation
Producing Moral and Technical Order in a Time of Pandemonium

presented by Joan Donovan

Of course we’re avid, avid watch­ers of Tucker Carlson. But inso­far as he’s like the shit fil­ter, which is that if things make it as far as Tucker Carlson, then they prob­a­bly have much more like…stuff that we can look at online. And so some­times he’ll start talk­ing about some­thing and we don’t real­ly under­stand where it came from and then when we go back online we can find that there’s quite a bit of dis­course about would­n’t it be fun­ny if peo­ple believed this about antifa.”

The Breakdown: Joan Donovan on Domestic Misinformation

presented by Joan Donovan, Oumou Ly

We are immersed in a hyper­par­ti­san media ecosys­tem where the future of jour­nal­ism is at stake, the future of social media is at stake. And right now I’m real­ly wor­ried that the US democ­ra­cy might not sur­vive this moment.

2013 Internet Hall of Fame Inductee Interviews: John Perry Barlow

presented by John Perry Barlow

My great­est hope, and the thing I’ve been work­ing for most of my life now, is that it will real­ize itself as being some­thing that makes it pos­si­ble for any­body to know any­thing that they’re capa­ble of know­ing. Which I think is a won­der­ful thought. Or that it will make it pos­si­ble for any­body that has some­thing impor­tant that oth­er peo­ple should hear to say it, with­out any fear of being shut up or coerced or that sort of thing. 

2013 Internet Hall of Fame Inductee Interviews: Steve Goldstein

presented by Steve Goldstein

There was real­ly no real secu­ri­ty built, oth­er than things like pass­words and maybe some encryp­tion here or there. And the atti­tude that my boss had at National Science Foundation was, That’s not our con­cern. This is for the aca­d­e­mics. People want to build in all kinds of secu­ri­ty, that’s some­body else’s prob­lem.” I think that was a very valid point at that time, but that was 1990.

we tried to con­nect to the ARPANET. And that was the Ministry of Defense, and at that time­frame we were in let’s say a cold war” with Russia. And we were not allowed to attest to that. So we silent­ly set up from phone lines SLIP pro­to­col, TCP over ser­i­al lines. And start­ed to do Internet.

presented by Raúl Echeberría

The Internet by itself is not valu­able for any­body. The Internet is valu­able if it impacts in the life of the peo­ple. So this is what we have to work on every day.

It has devel­op­men­tal­ly tak­en me a long time to real­ize I real­ly need peo­ple. So you know, it goes from that kind of like I’m going to be the hero­ic artist in my ate­lier,” to you know, Let’s get togeth­er and make s’mores and drink whisky and make design.”
