Looking back on Digital Conversations: A Web of Rights

In February, we welcomed Dr Martin Paul Eve, Jim Killock, Professor John Naughton, and Dr Joss Wright to the British Library to discuss how and in what ways the web has complicated, enhanced, and changed the rights of citizens for better or for worse as part of our Digital Conversations series.

The ensuing discussion was wide-ranging, provocative, and highly stimulating, touching on themes that included digital reproduction and labour, the assumptions behind the internet, privacy and anonymity, the intersections between online and offline experience, and the likely Barons were a digital Magna Carta to arise.

A recording of the panel and open discussion sections of the event are now available on Soundcloud. We thank the speakers for agreeing to share this under a Creative Commons Attribution licence. My live, partial, and incomplete notes from the events are on GitHub Gist.

Our next Digital Conversations event will take place on 21 May and will examine the state of the art with regards to Digital Music Analysis. Tickets can be booked via Eventbrite. These are free but demand is high, so book now to avoid disappointment
