"The Internet, Wide Open" is the fourth and final debate in the Design and Violence series prompted by two data visualization designs featured in Design and Violence: Patrick Clair's Stuxnet, a lens on the virus that initially targeted Iran's nuclear program, and Google's Digital Attack Map, a design that seeks to bring insight into a digital weapon that works both for and against free speech. The debate motion: Internet freedom and digital privacy will come about only through the design of better tools for civil disobedience and direct action. Opinions were delivered by:
Gabriella Coleman (the Wolfe Chair in Scientific and Technological Literacy at McGill University, and author of Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of Anonymous) and
Lawrence Lessig (the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, and Director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University).
