Joi Ito is one of the great pioneers of openness on the internet. He claims it will be "the pillar of democracy for the 21st Century". But with Egypt's so-called Facebook revolution in jeopardy and world-wide anxieties that the web is being used by governments to spy on their citizens, is this optimism misplaced? In a special live BBC World Service programme from Boston, Razia Iqbal introduces Joi Ito to listeners world-wide and an audience at MIT's Media Lab in Boston, USA. Join them at MIT Media Lab 12:40pm on Thursday March 14th for What If...We Could All Talk to Joi Ito? All tickets are FREE, there is a maximum of four per person, and tickets are released on a first-come first-served basis. The event finishes at 2pm.
