On Wednesday 25 January 2012, Professor John Naughton will be speaking at LSE following the publication of his recent book. The title of the seminar, which is the second in the NetworkED series, run by CLT and funded by the LSE Annual Fund is ‘What do people really need to know about the Internet?’
The Internet has gone from being something ‘exotic’ to a mundane utility in the course of two decades. But there is abundant evidence that many people – including those whose livelihoods depend on it – do not understand it. This talk is based on the research that went into John’s new book – ‘From Gutenberg to Zuckerberg: what you really need to know about the Internet’. The book will be publishd by Quercus Books on January 5th 2012.
The event will be held at 2pm – 3.30pm. To book a place to attend the seminar at LSE visit LSE online booking system. External guests may request a place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The event will also be live streamed to a worldwide audience. If you wish to watch the live streaming you do not need to register in advance. Simply visit the NetworkED website shortly before 2pm.
