Content Moderation at the Infrastructure Level
Hosted by the Electronic Frontier Foundation
EFF and Techdirt are teaming up for the latest Techdirt Tech Policy Greenhouse discussionwhich brings together a bunch of actual experts to discuss and debate complex and nuanced subjects regarding tech policy — this time about content moderation at the infrastructure layer. In addition to a series of posts on Techdirt, the discussion will conclude with two virtual events.
On October 6th from 9am to noon PT, we’ll have many of this series’ authors discussing and debating their pieces in front of a live (though virtual!) audience (register to attend here). The following day, on October 7th, EFF and Techdirt will be hosting a smaller workshop event to take some of what we learned and discussed the previous day, and see if we can come up with more concrete steps and approaches to make sure providers, policymakers, and others understand the risks and challenges of infrastructure moderation, and how to respond to those risks.
