Event Description

The Internet continues to expand and Internet-based applications continue to multiply leading to challenges of scale that still need to be solved. Significant aspects remain to be addressed such as security problems, broadband asymmetry, mobility, geographic indexing, searching of images, and bit rot. The Domain Name System itself faces business, technical and international policy challenges. Valuable applications such as social networking, online financial transactions, and space operations pose their own difficulties. A lively Q&A opportunity is eagerly awaited.
