Yochai Benkler, others at Harvard map current and future Internet

Harvard’s world-renowned
Berkman Center for Internet & Society
is celebrating its tenth anniversary with a conference called
Berkman@10.
The center is a conglomeration of many people, both lawyers and
non-lawyers, who study the Internet and add their efforts to empower
its users.
In my opinion, the most salient contribution of the Berkman Center
is its devotion to new research instead of pure theory.
I’ll report here on today’s sessions, which were organized as a fairly
conventional symposium (although as loosely as one could run it with
450 attendees).
