Young Lions Forum: Rewired
December 8, 2010
The Internet provides us with unprecedented access to information, but is new technology changing how we focus and organize? Moderated by Jennifer 8 Lee and featuring Perry Chen, Chris Hughes, Roo Rogers, and Naveen Selvadurai, this Young Lions Forum will investigate the ways in which new media influences contemporary thinking and behavior.
Perry Chen is the co-founder of Kickstarter, a new way to crowdsource funding for ideas and endeavors.
Chris Hughes co-founded Facebook before coordinating Barak Obama's groundbreaking 2008 presidental campaign online. He is also the founder of Jumo, a non-profit organization that aims to help people find ways to help the world.
Jennifer 8. Lee reported on technology, politics, and culture for The New York Times for nine years. She is currently a consultant for the Knight Foundation, which gives grants to support news innovation. She is the author of The Fortune Cookie Chronicles.
Roo Rogers is co-author of What’s Mine Is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption, an insightful look into the future of collaborative systems like Zipcar and Netflix. He is the director of Redscout Ventures.
Naveen Selvadurai is the co-founder of foursquare, a combination of software and social networking that is based on the very human desire to get out, see things, and share experiences with other people.
