The Circle of HOPE (2018): "Is the Internet Sick? Findings from Mozilla’s Internet Health Report" (DVD)
Friday, July 20, 2018: 4:00 pm (Booth): Our personal credit details have been stolen en masse. Social media has been weaponized as a tool of cruel harassment. The democratic process has been undermined by the manipulation of online news and ads. We are beginning to see the health of the Internet as not just a technical issue, but a human one. Mozilla’s Internet Health Report is an open-source project that documents and explains how people worldwide are interacting with and affected by our connected world. The report aims to provide a "big picture" of the global state of health of the Internet through the prism of five core issues: privacy and security, openness, digital inclusion, web literacy, and decentralization. This talk will share findings from the 2018 Internet Health Report, and examine how we might use the concept of "Internet health" as a catalyst for change in our communities.
