Paul Jay, senior editor of The Real News Network, will moderate a virtual panel discussion promoting a dialogue for the technology community about the technological and legal ramifications of the WikiLeaks shutdown.

Topics to be discussed include:

What does the cut off of service to WikiLeaks mean for the future of the Internet?
Will digital journalism be less protected?
Was WikiLeaks afforded procedural protections before its website and DNS entries were shut down? What process should be required?
The Internet is vulnerable to internal threats. What technical innovations are needed?
Can leaks ever be stopped? Is it worth the price?
