Silent Internet Revolutions
There are ten DIDS conferences behind us now – ten great tales of the Internet. Year by year, DIDS has chronicled silent Internet revolutions. The eleventh DIDS is set to kick off a new decade – of asking important questions and of seeking to identify where we are today, of remembering where we came from and everything that has happened along the way.
DIDS 2020 asks: in seeking to provide Internet users with the privacy they sorely need, is their security being sacrificed? Do new protocols which ensure the privacy of access to online destinations at the same time compromise the basic structure of the Internet, and how does that impact the experience of end users? In leaving it up to the tech giants to take care of our online privacy will we end up seeing the Internet solely through their eyes?
