Truth, justice and the Internet

The one and only Vint Cerf (known as the father of the Internet) came to New Zealand and spoke on an exciting topic in Wellington!

More and more of our time is spent on the Internet and current debate around the globe is often focussed on the facts and fictions that people and communities are promulgating online.
An extraordinary international panel explored integrity in the online world. We explored the impact of truth (and fiction) being posted online - for every part of the globe to see and be part of.

We partnered with the National Library of New Zealand to host an InternetNZ speaker series: “truth, justice and the Internet.”

Date: 13 November
When: 6:00 - 8:00pm 
Where: National Library of New Zealand, 100 Molesworth Street, Wellington

Panel members: 

  • Vint Cerf: Chief Internet Evangelist, Google
  • Jefferson Bailey: Director, Web Archiving, Internet Archive
  • Dr Rachael Ka’ai-Mahuta: Senior Researcher, Te Ipukarea, the National Māori Language Institute, Auckland University of Technology
  • Wendy Seltzer: Strategy Lead and Counsel, World Wide Web Consortium

The event was chaired by Andrew Cushen: Outreach and Engagement Director at InternetNZ.
