***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** You are invited to participate in a special project to gather input on the challenges and opportunities for the future of humanity and the Internet. The study is being conducted by two non-profits: Pew Research Center's Internet Project and Elon University's Imagining the Internet Center. We are collecting experts' input on the most likely evolution of technology and people's uses of it by the year 2025. Experts such as Semantic Web scientist James Hendler, Internet protocol co-inventor Vint Cerf, futurist David Brin, and tech commentators Esther Dyson, danah boyd and Jeff Jarvis are among those who are participating. If you have not already participated in the survey, please use a laptop, desktop or tablet computer and click on the link below and enter the password provided. https://www.rationalsurvey.com/s/10669 PASSWORD: FUTURE We hope you will take the time to share your insights now, so you do not forget, however, the site will be open until early January and you are allowed start and stop, thinking your answers through and participating over time. Past participants have told us that taking the time to think the questions we present to them through has helped them see a clearer path to future action in their own realm. By default, all of your responses are confidential. However, we provide respondents the opportunity to take credit for their remarks by simply typing their name at the beginning of each response. Taking credit lends credibility to the results and contributes to a more vibrant public conversation. Again, to have your remarks attributed to you, please type your name at the beginning of each open-ended response you provide. If your name does not appear at the beginning of a response, it will remain anonymous. If you know other thought leaders who would contribute meaningful insights on the questions posed in this survey, if you send us their contact details we will invite them to participate. The Pew Internet Project and Elon University will issue a series of reports based on this survey in 2014. Your answers, attributed or anonymous, will also be added to Imagining the Internet http://www.elon.edu/e-web/imagining/default.xhtml. If you have any questions, please contact us. Thank you!
