People are changing what they watch, and increasingly they are turning to independent video creators. These video creators exhibit a very diverse set of opinions, but they have a shared belief in the sanctity of freedom of speech & expression. Established institutions are threatened - traditional and social media giants are losing their audiences and revenue. Some countries are reacting with 1984-style censorship. What does it take to be a fearless, engaging creator in this environment? In Part 2 of the discussion, we’ll focus on the role blockchain technology may play in the decentralization of social networks, and its ability to avert censorship and empower creators to fully express themselves. March 6, 2018. National Arts Club - 15 Gramercy Park South, NYC. 6-10PM
