[Panel] Challenge it! - Decentralizing Tech Power

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this panel we will discuss about how we could use technologies to create a more inclusive and democratic world. In February 8, 1996, John Perry Barlow published the famous Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace. This declaration mirrors an idea where the internet and new technologies come together to liberate the individual from the monopoly and corporate power. Over the last decade new technologies changed power structures in the world, but where to? The technology industry has grown to dominate almost all aspects of human life and in the internet sphere power concentration has even increased. How does this comply to democratic principles? How can technology be reframed in order to distribute ownership and governance?
