The Future of Web Privacy: Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian
Mar 20 2012 5pm-6pm
Access
This event is limited to Georgetown University students, faculty and staff.
Description
Co-founder of the popular social news platform Reddit.com, Alexis Ohanian has been one of the 21st century’s key internet figures. Founded in 2005, Reddit.com has attracted millions of users over the years and has transformed into what today is frequently referred to as “the front page of the internet.” Having left the site in an official capacity in 2009, Alexis has since been included in Forbes' '30 under 30' innovators in various fields, and, as an ardent supporter of web privacy, has worked tirelessly to protest the proposed SOPA and PIPA bills in Congress.

Lohrfink Auditorium

Co-Sponsored by: The Lecture Fund, McDonough School of Business, GU College Democrats, GU College Republicans, Hoyas for Liberty, and the Computer Science Club.
