September 23rd & 24th, 2011, on The Signal…
“In the past, personal and political liberty depended to a considerable extent on government inefficiency. The spirit of tyranny was always willing, but its organization and equipment were generally weak. Progressive science and technology have changed all that completely.”
-Aldous Huxley, 1948
Little could Mr. Huxley have imagined today’s internet and the digital apparatus that surrounds us all – cell phones, GPS, and ‘smart’ devices of all sorts, and so this week we ask: Are we better off with these tools, or are they making tools of us?
This episode of The Signal is a collection of highlights from the 2011 Constitution Day symposium, “Free Speech in the Digital Age,” organized by MICA and the Maryland ACLU and recorded in front of a live audience on September 17th at MICA’s Brown Center. The panel included ACLU policy analyst Jay Stanley, artist Trevor Paglin, and blogger Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Dish.
