 The Future of Free Speech Online

EVENT OVERVIEW In our system of government, our First Amendment rights are not unlimited when it comes to private companies and platforms. Yet, as our speech increasingly becomes digital, we’re faced with a multitude of new layers that can moderate, censor, or amplify the content of that speech. From issues of deplatforming, to filtering, to the concentration of power among a few large platforms, some increasingly fear that free speech itself is under threat. Will the future continue the trend of concentration and centralization, or will the pendulum swing back from the cathedral of big tech to the bazaar of the decentralized web? Our expert panel will explore these issues and more, covering the balance and the boundaries of free speech. Doors open at 6:30 PM with a cocktail reception followed by the panel.  FEATURING Antonio García Martínez, Writer at Wired and author of Chaos Monkeys Ryan Radia, Senior Policy Counsel at Lincoln Network Galen Wolfe-Pauly, CEO and Co-Founder of Tlon Doug Kramer, General Counsel at Cloudflare Alex Feerst, Head of Legal at Medium Moderated by Riva-Melissa Tez.
