Invite you to join an informal discussion about:
THE ELECTIONS AND INTERNET POLICY
RSVP via Eventbrite required: www.isoc-dc-election2012.eventbrite.com
Thursday, September 20, 2012
6:30 PM – 8:00 PM Discussion (followed by a reception)
Hosted by Google DC
1101 New York Ave., N.W., Second floor Washington, DC
The 2012 Presidential and Congressional elections are less than two months away. While Internet policy is not a “hot button” issue, the platforms for both parties devote paragraphs to Internet issues such as Net Neutrality, cybersecurity, and Internet freedom–and there are significant differences.
Join us for a lively roundtable discussion on questions such as: How would Internet policy change in a Romney Administration? What will be the most pressing issues facing the President and the Congress in 2013? If the Republicans win the Senate, will we see new approaches to telecommunications and Internet policy?
