Evening Forum

The Bay Area is at the center of the creative and technology innovation driving the Internet age. This period of rapid evolution has created new and dynamic networks reflecting the great diversity of our region. But it is also a time of contradiction and disruption, challenging the traditional boundaries of place, identity and decision-making. Moderated by Phil Bronstein, executive chair of the Center for Investigative Reporting, this debate, featuring Matthew Meschery of ITVS, funder, producer and promoter of independent filmmaking for public television, and Vanessa Hsu of the social media analytics company Topsy, will explore these new networks and the tensions and insights that will affect our futures.

Co-presented with The Bay Citizen, a project of the Center for Investigative Reporting
