The Internet Saves


Last year, it was "Think Bigger," and in 2012, it was "The Internet's New Political Power," but this year the Snowden revelations and recent events around the world have made it hard for us to be so aspirational. To be honest, it feels like we are living in both the best of times and the worst of times. So this year's theme may at first glance appear to be a contradiction: Save the Internet | The Internet Saves.

Whether you want to be part of the community fighting to "Save the Internet" or be part of the community who believe "The Internet Saves", the people, the organizations, the issues, the questions, and the potential solutions will all be gathered on June 5 and 6 in New York. Read our blog post announcing the theme to learn more.
