The Father of Net Neutrality Tim Wu Joins CloudFest India

Tim Wu, the father of Net Neutrality and author of The Attention Merchants and The Master Switch, joins CloudFest India to discuss the state of IT in India today.

India has 130 million Facebook users, more than any country in the world outside of the United States. Following Facebook’s questionable “Free Basics” zero-rated internet access offer coupled with Cambridge Analytica’s fake news scandal, India’s IT Minister is threatening to step in to ensure the digital giant does not misuse the power of its platform.

Tim Wu, a professor at Columbia Law School, contributing opinion writer for the New York Times and the “father of net neutrality” joins CloudFest India as our first keynote speaker, to discuss the trickle-down effect of how Facebook’s regional and international scandals could potentially affect the future of the cloud.

CloudFest takes place on May 23 in the Grand Hyatt Mumbai, and we are pleased to welcome Tim to help us break down the complexities of this timely story.
