History and Future of the Digital Revolution
This was part of the lecture series “Digital Revolution: Promise and Threat” of the Institute for Lifelong Education at Dartmouth.
Everett Mendelsohn explained the history of the “digital revolution” in his lecture “How Scientific Resolutions Revolutionize.” He traced its roots to three prior revolutions: scientific, industrial, and biological. Then Robin Raskin talked about what might be next in the digital realm in her lecture,"The Revolution That Keeps on Giving." Policy issues discussed included Internet privacy, regulation, and the revelations of former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.
