Alarm Worthy: 10:30 ET Today...State Dept. and CDT..."Internet Freedom"

BY Nancy Scola | Friday, February 18 2011

If this week's lineup of Secretary of State Clinton's big speech, a follow-up global chat with State's Alec Ross and Dan Baer, and a second follow-up online chat with Ross and Baer still leaves you wanting to hear more from the U.S. State Department about the makings of their "Internet freedom" agenda, you're in luck. Today, at 10:30 a.m. ET, Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor Michael Posner and Center for Democracy and Technology executive director Leslie Harris are sitting down for a conversation streamed live on DipNote, the State Department's blog. State Department spokesperson P.J. Crowley will moderate. Questions, they say, will be plucked from the comments, so ask away.
