Internet Now !
Organized in collaboration with Le Monde Diplomatique
Thusday 2 February
3:00 to 6:00 pm
Congress Center of Monaco
The explosion of Internet services has been made possible by powerful
interfaces allowing navigation in worldwide networks (Mosaic, World Wide Web,
Archie, Wais, Gopher, etc.). New Internet standards are already being prepared
(SIPP, IPNext Generation), together with new generations of navigation software
staffed by intelligent agents (knowbots). At the same time, the development of
electronic money (E-money), of coding and electronic signatures (DES, RSA,
PGP), and the ClipperChip controversy prove that essential issues are at stake
in terms of democracy.
Will Internet aggravate or attenuate the cleavage
between the "info-rich" and the "info-poor" ?
