On May 7, The OpenNet Initiative held a cocktail reception to celebrate the release of its new book, Access Controlled: The Shaping of Power, Rights, and Rule in Cyberspace. The reception was held during the Global Voices Summit in Santiago, Chile, and was attended by over 150 people.
Ethan Zuckerman, author of a chapter entitled, “Intermediary Censorship,” introduced the book, which then received praise from John Bracken of the MacArthur Foundation and Bob Boorstin of Google. Robert Faris, Catherine Bracy, and Jillian York of the Berkman Center spoke about the volume, thanking the many contributors in attendance and discussing the importance of the OpenNet Initiative’s research.
A lucky 40 attendees were invited to take home a copy of the book.
