In 10 years, what will the Internet look like? How will it affect our daily lives? Will it be even better than it is now—or even worse?
On Thursday, March 29, Slate, the New America Foundation, and Arizona State University will host “Down the Tubes,” a Future Tense happy hour event in Washington, D.C., at 6 p.m. As you enjoy drinks and snacks, you’ll listen to a discussion about the future of the Internet, featuring New America fellow Evgeny Morozov, author of The Net Delusion, and Slate Executive Editor Josh Levin, who edits the site's technology coverage and hosts the sports podcast “Hang Up and Listen.”
If you’d like to attend, please email email@example.com with your name, location, and any affiliation you’d like to mention. You can RSVP for yourself and one guest. Unfortunately, only a limited number of tickets are available. If you receive one, we’ll let you know and send you the event address.
Don't miss "Form and Fortune," Evgeny's cover story in the March 15 issue of the New Republic about the consequences of Steve Jobs' pursuit of perfection (subscription required).
