LIVE STREAM: Authority, Meet Technology: Will China’s Great Firewall Hold?


The New America Foundation and Slate Magazine are co-hosting a special public policy forum today to discuss the context and consequences of Google’s threat to pull out of China.
The event will run TODAY from 9:30 am – 11:00 am EST and will STREAM LIVE here at The Washington Note.
For a couple of interesting perspectives on this issue, I suggest Zachary Karabell’s piece in Time Magazine as well as Daniel Gross’s latest article for Slate.
Steve Clemons also penned a post for this blog on the topic.
A list of today’s panelists follows below.
