Co-founder of Global Voices Online

The speeches by Rebecca Mackinnon delve into the future of Internet use and whether it will be compatible with democracy.

Mackinnon graduated from Havard University with honours in Government and became a Fulbright scholar in Taiwan afterwards. Her move was probably influenced by her childhood upbringing in Asia. She also wrote for Newsweek as a stringer before returning to the States to become a CNN correspondent and later, Bureau Chief.

In 2004, she became a Fellow at Harvard Law School's Berkman Center for Internet & Society, where she co-founded Global Voices Online as a project. She secured Fellow status at George Soros' Open Society Institute, Princeton University's Center for Information Technology Policy and the New America Foundation as well.

The speeches by Rebecca Mackinnon discuss the same subject matter of her book 'The Consent of the Networked', which warns of the restriction of Internet freedom by governments and corporations if nothing is done to protect the rights of users now.
