"The Border of the Internet" with Prof. Scott Christianson
The Internet seems boundless and borderless when we use it, but national borders define our online experience. How the country you live in incentivizes and regulates internet service providers (ISPs) determines the speed and quality of your connection and the degree that your online activities are restricted or surveilled. All that is about to change as several planetary-scale ISPs come online this year. We will explore what defines the borders of the Internet and if we are about to enter the era of "post-national" Internet and applications.
