Is the Internet Fragmenting? 
Part 2: The Technical Lens

Please join Microsoft and the Greater Washington DC Chapter of the Internet Society (ISOC-DC) for Part 2 of our series on Fragmentation, "Is the Internet Fragmenting? The Technical Lens" at the Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center on Wednesday, June 15. Stakeholders from government, industry, the technical community, civil society, and other organizations will examine how technology choices are fragmenting the Internet and the role of technology in business and policy decisions.
This event is Part 2 of a four-part series of dialogues organized in response to recent developments related to the Internet that have prompted alarming questions about whether it is fragmenting. They include a diverse set of technical, economic, and policy developments and decisions that have been taken in response to the continued growth and globalization of the Internet and its evolving role as critical infrastructure for the digital economy. Taken together, they raise an overarching concern on whether the global Internet may be fragmenting from a universal system due to the intended or unintended consequences of technical, commercial, and/or political decisions taken without full consideration of their potential impact.

Wednesday, June 15th • 8:30 am – 10:00 am • Light refreshments provided.
