Interactive Debate on Web’s Future, Featuring Tim Berners-Lee

ReadWriteWeb is the exclusive Media Partner for an interactive debate on the future of the Web, featuring Tim Berners-Lee. The event is June 11 and is being run by the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The debate will address questions such as: Is net neutrality essential for democracy? What role does AI have in the future of the Web? What will Web 4.0 look like?

These are issues we at RWW analyze often. Ok, we don’t use the term “web 4.0”. But see our post 10 Future Web Trends and its follow-up 10 More Future Web Trends.

This event is happening on June 11 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. If (like me) you’ve never heard of Troy NY, don’t worry because the debate will be webcast and the questions for discussion will be derived from the Web community. In other words, you can submit your questions on the Rensselaer website and then participate in a digg-style user-based ranking system. The most popular questions will drive the discussion at the June 11 debate. During the webcast, viewers will also be able to interact with the panelists by submitting questions and comments in real time.

Where ReadWriteWeb comes in is that we want to get our community behind this, because talking about the future of the Web is something that I’m sure a lot of you enjoy doing 🙂 RWW is proud to support this event and we hope you get involved. We will also try to live-blog it.

Before the debate, Tim Berners-Lee will deliver a keynote address. The event also doubles as the launch of The Tetherless World Constellation, which aims to “design new techniques to explore social, scientific, and legal impacts of the evolving technologies deployed on the Web.”
