" EMAIL—SHOULD THE SENDER PAY?"
Join EFF for a Fundraiser Debate with Mitch Kapor, Esther Dyson, and Danny O'Brien! They will discuss the potential consequences if people have to pay to send email. Would the Internet deteriorate as a platform for free speech? Would spam or phishing decline?
• Danny O'Brien is the Activist Coordinator for the EFF. Danny has documented and fought for digital rights in the UK for over a decade, where he also assisted in building tools of open democracy like Fax Your MP.
• Esther Dyson is the author of the book "Release 2.0: A design for living in the digital age," which suggested a sender-pays model for e-mail in 1997, Dyson also recently wrote a New York Times op-ed called "You've Got Goodmail," supporting a voluntary recipient-charges/sender-pays model for email.
• Mitchell Kapor co-founded EFF in 1990, and is widely known as the founder of Lotus Development Corporation and the designer of Lotus 1-2-3.
Suggested donation is $20. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
