Session description: What makes the Web what it is? What is happening to its core values as it evolves? What should be preserved and how and what changes are inevitable? Internet protocol co-inventor Vint Cerf has noted that, “The remarkable success of the Internet can be traced to a few simple network principles – end-to-end design, layered architecture and open standards.” The Internet’s underlying principles are threatened when new policies to regulate the Web are proposed with inadequate understanding of the core values.

The Future of Media and the Web
April 29, 3:30-5 p.m.
Panel description: Newspapers cut staff to the bone as advertising and circulation declines, radio centralized and nearly collapsed, television’s move to HD moved even stragglers to cable. There is plenty of news on the Web – for now – but as we see the world of news and the business of news changing at this very moment, we ask: Who will be the reporters? Who will we trust? Who will we pay and how will be pay them? What will they tell us? And how will we use or view that news? Data visualization, datamining, storytelling, crowdsourcing and citizen journalism offer some directions and models but none of those are yet stable and trusted. What are the most sustainable futures?

All are ways that innovative faculty are transforming education now, rethinking the basic configurations of higher education.

And what does higher education have to contribute to the future of the Web? On many levels, the future of learning is the future of the Web.
