Symposium on Wikileaks and Internet Freedom

In the digital age, should all information be free?
Does good government require secrecy, or more openness?
Can we trust private internet service providers to defend free speech?
Is Wikileaks a terrorist organization, or the beginning of a new kind of transnational investigative journalism?
Saturday, December 11, 10:00am – 2:00pm*
