This episode features Jennifer Ange, STLR Staffer, talking with Dr. Moran Yemini about the freedom of speech in the new digital age.
In his recent article published on STLR, Dr. Yemini argues that the digital age presents a new irony of free speech. The popular concept that the Internet promotes freedom of expression may be too simplistic. In his view, the Internet, while it strengthens our capacity of expression, also limits the liberty aspect of expression.
Dr. Yemini received his Ph.D. in Law from the University of Haifa, where he is also a Senior Fellow at the Center for Cyber, Law & Policy. He is currently a Visiting Fellow at the Information Society Project at Yale Law School, and at the Digital Life Initiative at Cornell Tech. Dr Yemini’s article THE NEW IRONY OF FREE SPEECH can be found in our most recent issue.
