Rebecca MacKinnon asks: How do we design the next phase of the Internet with accountability and freedom at its core, rather than control?

Magna Carta for the Internet

Rebecca Mackinnon believes the internet is headed for a „Magna Carta“ moment when citizens around the world demand that their governments protect free speech and their right to connection.

„The reality is that even in democratic societies today, we do not have good answers for how to balance the need for security and law enforcement on one hand and protection of civil liberties and free speech on the other in our digital networks.“

Looking at issues of privacy, free expression and governance

Rebecca MacKinnon looks at issues of privacy, free expression and governance (or lack of) in the digital networks. A former head of CNN’s Beijing and Tokyo bureaus, Rebecca MacKinnon is an expert on Chinese Internet censorship. She’s one of the founders of the Global Voices Online blog network, which aggregates and translates news around the world that might otherwise go unheard.

Street Artist JR, TED Prize winner 2011, wants you to use art to turn the world inside out

JR, French street artist and TED Prize winner 2011 wants you to take part in a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. He says:

„I wish for you to stand up for what you care about by participating in a global art project, and together we’ll turn the world…INSIDE OUT.“

Go to www.insideoutproject.net to see how you can get envolved.

Art can change the way we see the world

At TED he is talking about his work, about the insideoutproject, and about the role of art:

„In some ways art can change the world. I mean, art is not supposed to change the world, to change practical things, but to change the perceptions. Art can change the way we see the world […] Actually the fact that art can not change things makes it the neutral place for exchanges and discussions and then enables us to change the world.“
