$BIGNUM Steps Forward, $TRUMPNUM Steps Back: How Can We Tell if We're Winning?
Track Two, Saturday, July 29 at 10:00
EFF Special Advisor Cory Doctorow explores the essential question, which isn't, "Does the internet make us better or worse," it's: "HOW DO WE MAKE AN INTERNET THAT MAKES THE WORLD BETTER?" He discusses how to make the world better with code, but also with conversations, with businesses, with lawsuits and with laws.
