Deep-dive into the Web
*** This programme will be partly in English and partly in Dutch ***
A 12-hour conversation about half a century Internet: where do we stand?
Bits of Freedom and De Balie take a deep dive into the costs and benefits of 50 years of internet with more than 30 national and international guests. In a 12 hour-long programme we explore every nook and cranny of the world wide web. From the cables beneath the ground to the satellites in the sky. From the most-visited pages to underground weblogs. We welcome politicians, philosophers, early adopters of the Internet and the generation that cannot imagine life without it.
