The eG8 and the Future of the Net
Friday, June 03, 2011
Last week, French president Nicholas Sarkozy invited a group of world leaders and technology executives to the first ever eG8, a forum to discuss the future of the internet and global public policy. It was an invitation-only summit that included Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. City University of New York Professor Jeff Jarvis, who attended the conference, says governments should not be trying to control the future of the internet.
