An amazing forum - Can Liberty Survive The Digital Age - comes to an end in Berlin. #PrincetonFung @Princeton Conclusion: it's up to us.Oh hey. Happy birthday Twitter (2006).#PrincetonFung Troll mantra defined: Conflict is attention, attention is influence. #PrincetonFungBrad Smith answers the main #PrincetonFung question: We inherit the future we create. If we stand up for liberty, liberty will survive.Cyberspace is a battlefield that now even sees nation-states attack civilians. Time for a new Digital Geneva Convention? #PrincetonFung @MixOfStuff I would think so.Brad Smith suggests before acting in public, a person acts in private, making privacy sacrosanct for human progress…"There is no liberty without privacy" - Brad Smith, Microsoft President keynote talk as the 2nd day at #PrincetonFung gets going.A character is defined by the kinds of challenges he cannot walk away from.

Retweeted by Carl KruseA fantastic 1st day at #PrincetonFung: "Can Liberty Survive The Digital Age." Day 2 tomorrow. Thank you @Princeton for a magnificent forum."Young people think old people don't know how to use the internet. Well I've got news for you. We invented it." @vgcerf #PrincetonFung
Retweeted by Carl Kruse is here. Happy Vernal Equinox everyone. @renatesamson reminds us we are flesh AND data, we are all digital beings, not just analog creatures. #PrincetonFung @tim_walters This would seem to contradict what the FB representative said at #PrincetonFung @ryjmag @facebook Could FB newsfeed algorithm work better for those who have many connections versus those with just few? @ak_watolla Absolutely. There are rewards for those who engage in fake news, so we can assume they will find ways to continue delivering it.Reidenberg: "information bubble," e.g. info curated, tailored, delivered to us, potentially as dangerous as fake news. #PrincetonFung @ak_watolla I suspect (and fear) you are right. Fake news probably works many times.J Hofmann suggests fake news may be effective once, but not twice, as users of info get wiser. Hopefully she is right. #PrincetonFungAnd if private companies, can any but the largest (Facebook, Google) effectively deal with illegality due to resour… should be the arbiter of online legality? Private companies? Governments? Public outrage? #PrincetonFungCan liberty survive the digital era? "Yes," says @vgcerf though its survival depends on us. We must ensure it does. #PrincetonFungLifelong learning, continuous self reinvention, as requisites for future living and work - Vinton Cerf #PrincetonFungThe Princeton Global Forum gets going in Berlin: "Can Liberty Survive The Digital Age?" #PrincetonFung
