As governments, academics, and entrepreneurs continue to debate regulatory and economic solutions to the myriad of perceived ills of today’s Internet, and as technology experts proclaim the dawn of an entirely new era thanks to AI, The Internet We Deserve lecture series will explore a portion of the Internet that provides a fresh perspective and much needed context: its history.

Hosted by the Burnes Center for Social Change at Northeastern University in partnership with the Khoury College of Computer Science  and moderated by Burnes Center Senior Fellow John Battelle, the series will feature notable business, policy, technology and academic leaders who have been central to the creation of the Internet as we know it today. 

On February 6 at 2 p.m., hear from Larry Lessig,  Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, founder of the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School and Equal Citizens and a founding board member of Creative Commons. 

Lessig has been cited by The New Yorker as “the most important thinker on intellectual property in the Internet era.”

This event will be a hybrid event on Northeastern’s Boston campus, and hosted on Zoom.

In person location: Egan Research Center, Room 440, 120 Forsyth St, Boston, MA 02115
