From the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute website:

On June 11, 2008, leading authorities on the World Wide Web will gather at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for an old-fashioned debate with a social media twist. The questions for discussion will be shaped and selected by the collective wisdom of Web users from around the world.

After delivering a keynote address, Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the Web, will join a panel of experts from academia and industry for a public discussion about the Web’s future.

The content of the debate will be collaboratively created by Web users, who can submit questions and promote them through a user-based ranking system, similar to the community-based news site Digg. The most popular questions will drive the discussion at the June 11 debate.

The public debate, which will be streamed live via an interactive Webcast, is part of a daylong event to celebrate the launch of the Tetherless World Constellation at Rensselaer — a new academic center devoted to the emerging field of Web Science.

This event is a chance to discuss and argue about where the Web is headed. Berners-Lee’s
keynote is at 2:45 p.m. EST and the debate starts at 3:45 p.m. EST. Click here to check it out!
