The Center for Internet and Society (CIS) at Stanford Law School is looking for a volunteer Summer Intern to work on public interest issues involving technology and the Internet.
CIS is a leading center for the study of the relationship between the public interest, law and technology. CIS was founded by law professor Lawrence Lessig and is headed by Lessig and law professor Barbara van Schewick. The Center’s executive director is Lauren Gelman; Anthony Falzone directs the Fair Use Project.
CIS Co-Director, Barbara van Schewick, and David Farber of Carnegie Mellon University, recently debated the Nuances of Net Neutrality in the Association for Computing Machinery's (ACM) February 09 publication, Communications of ACM. Their piece is described as a discussion of divergent paths to unrestricted access of content and applications via the Internet.
Stanford Reference Librarian and Archivist Sarah Wilson created this wonderful compilation of testimonies, statements, press releases, news coverage and other materials from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Public En Banc Hearing on Broadband Management Practices - held at Stanford University on April 17, 2008. Thanks Sarah!
