    Hi all,

     

    While not directly connected to library digital content matters, the Knight Foundation is offering a free event (with virtual option)  on Nov 28 – 30th next week,  on Democracy in the Digital Age.

     

    Portions of it will be of great interest to librarians.

    "INFORMED brings together key leaders and experts to engage around the biggest questions at the intersection of technology, media, and democracy. Presented by Knight Foundation, the gathering will be an important opportunity for policymakers, researchers and the private sector to discuss the latest trends and research in this emerging field, while strengthening relationships that lead to more informed policy in the public interest. Internet technologies have brought unprecedented social advantages and helped democratize access to information and ideas. However, in recent years, these same technologies have also been exploited to mislead, disenfranchise and undermine democracy. As the internet continues to evolve, the challenges to an informed citizenry are likely to intensify in years to come. INFORMED will be a critical forum to explore these challenges and viable solutions."
