This coming Monday (3/6), I’ll be headed to a little debate between Glenn Reynolds, Joe Trippi, and Barry C. Lynn, hosted at the National Press Club:
Do the Internet and other related technologies allow us to be more in control of our lives? Are politics, culture, and economics more responsive to individuals than ever before or is more power becoming concentrated in fewer and fewer hands? Join three of the most provocative minds in America as they hash out these and related questions in a no-holds-barred discussion.
I actually got an early copy of Glenn’s latest book – An Army of Davids: How Markets and Technology Empower Ordinary People to Beat Big Media, Big Government, and Other Goliaths. It doesn’t come out till March 7th but I’m already through Chapter 4. Hope to make some more progress this weekend and would love an autograph by him.
I’ve inquired about Internet access at the event – if there is, I will attempt to live blog (my analytical, reflective, and perfectionist nature tend to not make me the best live blogger). No matter what, I will have some sort of write-up post event.
If you are in the D.C. area and are interested in attending it, be sure to RSVP.
