I am deeply honored to be part of this year’s inductees into the Internet Hall of Fame and the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Internet Society, an organization that has done so much to further the goals of an open and broadly-available Internet. I think we have a long way to go still.
I found that research globally is pointing out that women are 50% less likely to be connected to the Internet. And not just that. Even when they’re connected they’re 30 to 50% less likely to use it for personal empowerment. So much for Web For All, right?
What does it mean to be private when you’re in a place where you have no right to privacy but are ironically deprived of the thing that makes your privacy go away?
