Rise of the Individual

Event Description:
A Ford Hall Forum event.

Featuring Nicco Mele (Founder, EchoDitto and author, The End of Big) and Kevin Bankston (Director, Free Expression Project, Center for Democracy & Technology). Moderated by Dharmishta Rood (Fellow, Harvard University Psychology Department).

The invention of the internet has opened an entirely new world of communication and, therefore, organization. With so much power now in the hands of the individual, one questions whether we need institutions anymore. As this technology progresses, we face an inevitable need to restructure our government systems, safety measures, and concept of ownership, as well as their attached legal implications. But while the world touts the internet as the prime conveyer of a bold, new democracy, we consider how it also ushers in sharper methods of surveillance and control. Moderator Dharmishta Rood leads Nicco Mele and Kevin Bankston in a bold discussion on how the internet is giving rise to the individual.
