UNIVERSITY - Knowledge Beyond Authority
an address to authority that speaks from university and says: this is what we want

Harvard University's Internet & Society 2007 Conference (IS2K7) seeks to reify UNIVERSITY as an identity in cyberspace.

We will ask how University should relate to the world of intellectual property with respect to what we use and what we produce, and how interconnected the “library” of University should be. We will consider how the corporate worlds of search and content might thrive by supporting networked universities. We will collaboratively take on the quest for new forms of compatible efficiency to unleash the generative force of universities in the Net.

Internet transforms organizational process for sharing and making meaning. As the world’s main engine for the creation, dissemination and utilization of knowledge – and a parent of the Net – university, as both individual institution and aggregate collective, face important questions about how to behave in this emergent ecosystem.

IS2K7 is a university-wide event held on the Harvard Campus open to all of Harvard and its friends. It will gather a diverse group of scholars, students, entrepreneurs, technologists, administrators and policymakers. It is organized by the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and partners around Harvard, and supported by the Office of the Provost at Harvard, Science Commons, Reed Elsivier, and others. The substance of our conversations – and their outputs – will be inputs to an ongoing conversation rather than the final word.

Declare university
Give it substance in the net
