Net Neutrality Forever? The Very Long View

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

This session will address the Net Neutrality question over the very long term: identifying the issue's significance over the long term trends in the evolution of the Internet. The presentation will draw on early theories of the Internet and comparisons to similar moments in the telephone and radio industry in the 20th century. The basic question is whether Net Neutrality rules can "lock in" an open internet, or whether they are on the path to long-term monopolization and consolidation.

LEVEL: Intermediate
