Internet at Liberty 2012: Promoting Progress and Freedom
Following the highly successful Internet at Liberty 2010, activists and experts from around the world will converge at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. on May 23-24 to explore the most pressing dilemmas and exciting opportunities around free expression in the digital age.
