Digital futures with Phil Laszkowicz

How can the civilian technology community rebuild the Internet and Web security to reclaim it from its military origins and secure individual freedoms?


Phil Laszkowicz presents a response to this question to open up and invite a discussion about the involvement of technologists to create better standards at community and industry standards organisations, such as IETF and the World Wide Web Consortium. "I’ve been dubbing this the Civilian Network or CivNet, as opposed to the Internet."

"A well respected industry mentor and consultant, Phil is currently working amongst SMEs and the tech start up community across Manchester. It is hard to pin him down so it is an honour to be able to secure some of his time and gain some insight into his wizardry." Gordon Blair
