A panel discussion with FOSI CEO Stephen Balkam, Microsoft Vice President and Deputy General Counsel Steve Crown, Author of "The Flickering Mind" Todd Oppenheimer, Digital Nation's Producer Rachel Dretzin, and Verizon's Executive Director of Internet and Technology Policy Mike McKeehan will follow the screening of the film.
