Join Professor of Communications Dr Jonathan Obar and local cryptographer James Donaldson (founder of Toronto Crypto) for a panel discussion on the many ways in which the Internet is broken, and what we as individuals, and organizations, can do about it.

Like the force, the Internet surrounds us, and binds our lives together. Every time you use an ATM, read about your child's school activities on their teacher's blog, read a newspaper, watch television, buy groceries, or drive your car, the Internet is there.

It dwells within the support systems in your car, through store cameras and RFID tags, it logs where you walk in the grocery aisle, it hollows out and winnows the physical news sheet you or your parents insist on subscribing to. And pretty soon, it will tell you when the milk in your fridge needs replacing, and interrupt your night out to inform you that your home alarm just went off.
