PUNKCAST1467 - Oct 27 2008. In the fourth lecture in Evan Korth's NYU Computers and Society course EFF co-founder John Perry Barlow speaks on the topic - "The First Internet Election?" Barlow writes about the inspiration for this lecture: Ten years ago when I was a fellow at the Institute of Politics at Harvards Kennedy School, I was on a panel with Senator Ted Kennedy and my tragically late sidekick John Kennedy, Jr. The focus of our discussion was determining when the Internet would likely have the pivotal role in shaping a presidential campaign that television had assumed in the 1960 election of their brother and father. Oddly, for a couple of guys who were deeply suspicious of Cyberspace, they both thought this would happen much sooner than I did, possibly as early as 2000. I said it would be a decade at least. It has now been a decade. And this, with any luck at all, will now be that election. This lecture series is sponsored by the Internet Society - NY Chapter, Free Culture @ NYU, Women in Computing (WinC), and the Association for Computing Machinery NYU Chapter.
