Internet & Democracy 2005 (IS2K5): Day 2

Today we’re 50 miles south of Oxford, in London, near Paddington, for a
small-group session on Internet, filtering, blogging, and human
rights.  It’s amazing group that brings some of the global voices
crowd — gathered here for GV II tomorrow — together with human rights
activists and technologists from the OpenNet Initiative
The idea is for those of us who study Internet filtering and
surveillance to learn more from those who do human rights work in the
field and a chance to share some of our research, as well as the
learnings of the GB crowd, with some people who might be able to learn
from it.  We’re especially grateful for the support and funding
from the MacArthur Foundation for this work and to our partners at
Human Rights Watch for their leadership on the HR front.
