I have practiced law for many years of cultural change, and in that time, I have attended conferences, conventions, seminars and symposia all over the world about business in general and the law practice in specific. However, the Harvard Conference on the Internet and Society at Harvard University in Cambridge from May 28-31, 1996 was one of the best.|
The moderators, participants and speakers were among the leaders of business, education, medicine and law in today's world including, for example, Neil Rudenstine, President of Harvard University, Bill Gates, Microsoft CEO, and Scott McNealy, Sun Microsystems CEO.
Sessions ranged from Business (Creating Value on the Web; Extracting Value from the Web; Customer Relations and Brands on the Web; and Market Formation); to Law (Intellectual Property Online;
Content Control on the Internet; and Digital Convergence and Vertical Integration); from Public Policy (the Paradigm of Interoperability; the Place for the Internet in National and Global Information Infrastructure; and the Government's Role in the Development of the Internet); to Press and Politics; to Health Care; to Education; to Library and Publishing; and to Technology.

Gary L. Wolfstone intends to help resolve these issues !
