 This is going to be awesome.  Check out the roster of internet superstars. 
 Unfortunately I teach from 5:00-8:00 on Wednesday nights so I cannot make 
 it.  I hope some of you can take my place.

 What will come of the next decade on the Internet? We often take for granted
 the state of the net today, but there's no guarantee that it will remain
 this way. Will the digital future be dystopian, or is there a brighter
 outlook ahead than some may believe? Our panelists -- thinkers and net
 visionaries -- will provide their perspectives on the future of the net,
 with backgrounds ranging from art, law, technology, politics, media,
 culture, and entrepreneurship.  We will tap in to each speaker's knowledge
 to provide a unique vision of the digital future, and will engage with
 members of the audience to further the exploration of what lies ahead.
