The future of the internet

Yesterday I had the pleasure of introducing Dr Jeffrey Eisenach's Wednesday Lowy Lunch presentation on the challenges governments face in trying to regulate the internet. Dr Eisenach is a leading regulatory economist and a global expert on content filtering technology. You can now listen to his presentation and the lively Q&A session by clicking here. And note that Dr Eisenach's accompanying powerpoint presentation is also available — well worth a look for some mind-boggling statistics about the growth of the internet. One interesting historical marker noted by Dr Eisenach: a Neilsen survey shows that among Australian adults, the numbers of hours spent online per week recently surpassed the hours spent watching TV.
