Description

Event abstract: In 1998 Americans represented nearly three quarters of all Internet users; today they are less than fifteen percent. The complexion of the Web - its users, their desires, their languages, points of entry and experiences - has subtly and not-so-subtly changed. All these new online participants bring with them different values, social norms, and styles of expression. Today's Internet is increasingly a reflection of the world's cultures and its governments, which often have very different ideas about how to shape what happens online.

In this video, NPR's Digital Culture Correspondent Laura Sydell talks with Dr Genevieve Bell and Dr. Abigail De Kosnik in an engaging discussion about the changing face of the Internet. Dr. Genevieve Bell is an Intel Fellow and Director of Intel Interaction & Experience Research and co-author of "Divining the Digital Future." Dr. Abigail De Kosnik is an Assistant Professor at the University of California, Berkeley in the Berkeley Center for New Media and the Department of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies.
