How the Internet Improves Humanity

April 14, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm CDT

How the Internet Improves Humanity

Given the time and energy we spend worrying about the Internet’s flaws, it’s easy to forget how the Internet makes our lives better in many ways. This talk will highlight one underappreciated aspect: how the Internet has the capacity to improve the human species by increasing pro-social interactions and reducing anti-social ones. The talk will also show how this scenario probably won’t be realized because of misguided regulatory efforts to “fix” the Internet.

Eric Goldman is Associate Dean for Research, Professor of Law, Co-Director of the High Tech Law Institute, and Supervisor of the Privacy Law Certificate, at Santa Clara University School of Law. His research and teaching focuses on Internet law, and he blogs on that topic at the Technology & Marketing Law Blog.
