The Rise and Fall of the Internet
Thursday, 20th June 2019
This event is fully booked or has passed.
After thirty years the Internet is showing signs of strain. The engagement of computers with communications had been heralded with such promise, but it has turned sour. Weâve seen the Internetâs powers of disruption in retail, television and newspapers. Now itâs turning on itself with dark tales of election tampering, the destructive side of social media and an unhealthy preoccupation with cyber warfare. How did the Internet embark on such a self-destructive path?
Geoff Huston is a pioneer of the Internet in Australia, bringing the technology to Australia in 1989. He has been closely involved in the evolution of the technology of the Internet for many years, working for the Universities, then with Telstra and is currently the Chief Scientist at the Asia Pacific Network Information Centre.
TelSoc and Geoff will be at an event in Melbourne on Thursday 20thJune 2019.
The speech and telecast will start at 5:50pm and finish around 7pm, including Q&A - which will only be available for online participants using messaging on Zoom.
The Zoom code for the event is: Topic: Henry Sutton Zoom Meeting
