Weinberger, Falkvinge, Amamou: video speeches @ <ahref Foundation
On 11 november 2011, during the Italian edition of the Internet Governance Forum, Trento also hosted the roundtable "Internet and Freedom". The event focused on the strategic role of new technologies in the recent protest wave that spread across world, from the Arab Spring to the Indignados and Occupy movements in Western countries. Also discussed were the threats to Internet freedom currently pursued non only by authoritarian governments but also by those countries that call themselves evolved democracies, such as the Italian case.
David Weinberger, Slim Amamou and Rick Falkvinge took part in the event, chaired by Luca De Biase. A report about that discussion is available on the website of IGF Italia 2011. In the evening, the same three speakers held a “lectio magistralis” at the <ahref Foundation headquarters. Now these videos are also available online.
