Will tomorrow’s Internet be controlled by large corporations like Facebook and Google? Or by governments? Or network operators? Will you have to ask permission before people can see your new video? Will you have to add to your budget to pay Internet service providers to let their customers see your website? Or will tomorrow’s Internet enable you to reach even greater numbers of supporters? And raise more funds? Or will you, as a nonprofit, be stuck in the slow lane of the Internet? We are at a critical point in the evolution of the Internet where the choices we make today will determine whether we continue to have an Internet that enables great opportunities, or one in which it is difficult for nonprofits to communicate and serve their mission.

The Internet Society’s Dan York will walk through different scenarios for the future of the Internet, and cover topics including the rise of mobile devices and apps, social networks, security and privacy, network neutrality, Internet governance, and more. Please bring your questions and join this interactive session. You’ll leave with a solid understanding of how the Internet may evolve, and what actions YOU and your organization can take today to help ensure tomorrow’s Internet works for you!
