How the web will save the world..

Description

Inspired by Renny Gleeson’s “What is Ignite?”, Franz will take us down memory lane with some philosophical banter about the role de-centralized media plays in history. Ripe with irony and examples of the web already making the world a better place today, this fast paced presentation won’t be revolutionary, but should get even the most jaded dot-commie excited about the medium again.
