Is the Internet stoking democratic change or is its impact hyped? Are repressive regimes conditioning people not to expect free expression on the Internet? Is online organizing little more than a game of Whac-a-Mole with one form of repression being replaced by another? What are the implications for political organizing of the recent discovery that the email accounts of dozens of Chinese human rights advocates appear to have been hacked? Join Google and Freedom House to answer this question and many more.

Moderator: Pablo Chavez, Managing Policy Counsel, Google
Panelists: Larry Diamond, Professor & Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University
Daniel Calingaert, Deputy Director of Programs, Freedom House
Omid Memarian, Iranian Dissident Blogger
