Truth, justice and the Internet

We have some exciting news - the one and only Vint Cerf (known as the father of the Internet) is coming to New Zealand and you are invited to hear him speak 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 will explore integrity in the online world. We want to explore the impact of truth (and fiction) being posted online - for every part of the globe to see and be part of.

We are partnering 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 (drinks and nibbles at 6pm and panel starts at 6:30pm)
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
