D.C. Happy Hour Event: Evgeny Morozov and Josh Levin To Discuss the Internet's Future

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.”
