Survey Topic

Working Title: The internet is a dumpster fire. Now what?

Working Description: The internet isn’t perfect. The biggest internet companies created tools for good that are now being used with bad intentions. Countries don’t always make the best decisions. Users make poor choices in security... so now what? This session looks at the “TechLash” in terms of three current trends in addressing early design flaws: sweeping regulations in content platforms around data breach liability, an entity having ‘too much’ data, and end-user control options. Tech backlash is gaining momentum against Fake news that disrupts our democracy; hate speech and violent videos; and perceived tech bias against conservative bias. If you have a gripe about the internet, this session is for you!
