We are now less than two weeks out from this year’s NetHui, and I want to share with you just how excited we are with the programme we’ve pulled together.
This NetHui is set to be one of the most exciting yet. Our theme of trust and freedom on the Internet couldn’t be more relevant or timely. We have dozens of sessions and panels planned that’ll explore the wide range of topics and challenges that we, and the internet community are facing together; like keeping yourself secure online, and whether and how the Internet should be censored and filtered. We will be looking at copyright. We’ll be looking at how children can best be engaged and educated online. We’ll talk about privacy, artificial intelligence and what to do about the digital divide. In fact there’s a topic and a panel or a meetup for everybody that’s involved in the Internet community in New Zealand.
We also have some really interesting keynote speakers coming to join us, like Jillian York from the Electronic Frontier Foundation in Berlin and Pia Waugh from the Department of Internal Affairs. You can find out when they’re speaking and see the entirety of the rest of the programme here.
I’ll be blogging over the next few days telling you more about this programme and what you can expect if you come and join us, from the 9-10 November at the Aotea Centre in Auckland.
Most importantly though, we want you to come and join the discussion. NetHui is about exploring the possibilities and challenges of our Internet together. The more voices and diversity we have in the conversations the better the conversations are.
Tickets are available now on the NetHui website. We’d love to see you there!
