Posting for Pew Research:

Members of this list are invited to  participate in a special project to
gather input on the challenges and opportunities for the future of humanity
and the Internet. The study is being conducted by two non-profits: Pew
Research Center's Internet Project and Elon University's Imagining the
Internet Center. We are collecting experts' input on the most likely
evolution of technology and people's uses of it by the year 2025. Experts
such as Semantic Web scientist James Hendler, Internet protocol co-inventor
Vint Cerf, futurist David Brin, Esther Dyson, danah boyd and Jeff Jarvis
are among those who are participating.

If you have not already participated in the survey, please use a
laptop, desktop
or tablet computer and click on the link below and enter the password


We hope you will take the time to share your insights now, so you do
not forget,
however, the site will be open until early January and you are allowed
start and stop, thinking your answers through and participating over time.
Past participants have told us that taking the time to think the questions
we present to them through has helped them see a clearer path to future
action in their own realm.

By default, all of your responses are confidential. However, we
provide respondents
the opportunity to take credit for their remarks by simply typing their
name at the beginning of each response. Taking credit lends credibility to
the results and contributes to a more vibrant public conversation. Again,
to have your remarks attributed to you, please type your name at the
beginning of each open-ended response you provide. If your name does not
appear at the beginning of a response, it will remain anonymous.

If you know other thought leaders who would contribute meaningful insights on
the questions posed in this survey, if you send us their contact details we
will invite them to participate.

The Pew Internet Project and Elon University will issue a series of reports
based on this survey in 2014. Your answers, attributed or anonymous, will
also be added to Imagining the Internet
http://www.elon.edu/e-web/imagining/default.xhtml.  If you have any questions,
please contact us.

Thank you!
