Undergraduate Lecture Series (M2): Cultures of the Internet

Date & Time:
16:00:00 - 17:30:00,
Monday 18 October, 2010


This lecture will examine and explore the origins of the Internet in the culture of freedom, sharing and libertarian ideals. These early influences have profoundly influenced the network that we use today, and this lecture will argue that widespread sharing, open source, mass self-communication and individual autonomy can all be traced back to these cultural roots.
