Who is in charge of policing the internet? As pressure by governments increases on technology companies to do more to combat terrorism and other unlawful activities on mainstream websites and social media platforms, for the first time, major technology giants come together to openly discuss their online moderating processes and procedure and to explain how their internal policing actually works. Among the guests and panellists:
  • Zac Cox (Reddit)
  • Nora Puckett, Senior Litigation Counsel for Google
  • Monika Bickert (Facebook)
  • Jan Gerlach (Wikimedia)
  • Aaron Schur (Yelp)
  • Jacob Rogers (Wikimedia)

  • Gordon Strause (Nextdoor)
  • Charlotte Willner (Pinterest)
  • Tarleton Gillespie (Microsoft Research)
  • Jennifer Urban (UC Berkeley School of Law)
  • Jennifer Urban (UC Berkeley School of Law)
