Digital Dramamine

A session at The Next Web 2012

Thursday 26th April, 2012

9:45am to 10:15am (AMT)

How the internet united, strengthened, and lead an unprecedented victory in Washington DC against notoriously powerful lobbying forces. Dollars and voters are the two things that get the attention of our congresspeople -- fortunately the latter triumphed to thwart SOPA & PIPA. I'll tell my story as one of the inadvertent faces of this leader-full online movement in the USA, which mirrored the battles against ACTA and its ilk throughout the world. This is far from over.
