Slate and NAF Event Tackles China’s Great Firewall

The Slate and New America Foundation event – “Authority, Meet Technology: Will China’s Great Firewall Hold?” may have already exceeded capacity but there’s good news for would-be attendees who missed the chance to register — you can watch a live webcast of the event here on Wednesday (January 20, 2010) morning at 9:30 am.

Featuring a panel discussion, the event will investigate the ethical challenges faced by media companies in the Chinese market and Google’s threat to pull of China, following a series of attacks on its network and Beijing’s ongoing censorship.

The panel will be moderated by The Atlantic’s James Fallows and includes State Department Senior Advisor for Innovation Alec Ross, Evgeny Morozov of Foreign Policy, Co-founder of Global Voices Online Rebecca MacKinnon and Tim Wu, Slate contributor and Columbia Law School professor.
