In this Six Pillars show we tap into the fine array of people at Share Conference, Belgrade for a short journey of discovery.
We discuss Iran’s move towards a closed, national intranet which they can then fully censor, with a leader in the global free-internet culture movement: Elizabeth Stark. Elizabeth presented a talk at Share and has previously worked with the Harvard Advocates for Human Rights to make better use of new media to promote human rights. Stark spent years researching for the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard, and has taught courses ranging from Cyberlaw to Intellectual Property to Technology & Politics to Electronic Music.
We also discuss art, Lebanon and the fascinating story of the Lebanese community in Australia with Kamal Ackerie, himself a Lebanese Australian. At the time of interview Ackerie was Associate Director of the prolific arts and music production agency Forma Arts, UK.
