Welcome speech; What Do You Meme? Godwin’s Law vs. The Streisand Effect

Mike Masnick

Mike Masnick

CEO/ FounderTechdirt
Mike Masnick is the founder & editor of the popular Techdirt blog as well as the founder of the Silicon Valley think tank, the Copia Institute. In both roles, he explores the intersection of technology, innovation, policy, law, civil liberties, and economics. His writings have been cited by Congress and the EU Parliament. According to a Harvard Berkman Center study, his coverage of the SOPA copyright bill made Techdirt the most linked-to media source during the course of that fight. Masnick and Copia have also been key players in the ongoing battles over net neutrality and encryption. Masnick is also known for coining the term "The Streisand Effect," to describe how attempting to stifle speech online can serve to draw even more attention.

Stuck in the middle with you

Stuck in the middle with you

Internet providers are middle men, which is a problem as not all of our clients are law-abiding. There are people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. 'They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists . And some, we assume, are good people. Many think it’s time to blame the middle man for the actions of these clients. Mike Masnick, CEO and Founder of TechDirt, joins us to introduce a groundbreaking new study about the role of the Internet middle man, with some conclusions that will shock you.
