We have some exciting news - the one and only Vint Cerf (known as the father of the Internet) is coming to New Zealand and you're invited to hear him speak on an exciting topic in Wellington!

More and more of our time is spent on the Internet and current debate around the globe is often focused on the facts and fictions that people and communities are promulgating online.

An extraordinary international panel will explore integrity in the online world. We want to explore the impact of truth (and fiction) being posted online - for every part of the globe to see and be part of.

We are partnering with the National Library of New Zealand to host this InternetNZ speaker series: “truth, justice and the Internet.”

The international panel is one to impress!

  • Vint Cerf: Chief Internet Evangelist, Google
  • Jefferson Bailey: Director, Web Archiving, Internet Archive
  • Dr Rachael Ka’ai-Mahuta: Senior Researcher, Te Ipukarea, the National Māori Language Institute, Auckland University of Technology.
  • Wendy Seltzer: Strategy Lead and Counsel, World Wide Web Consortium

The event will be chaired by InternetNZ's Director of Outreach and Engagement Andrew Cushen.

A big thank you to GOVIS who is sponsoring the event.
