This Week’s Topic

Will Misinformation and Disinformation Win?

Misinformation (incorrect information that spreads inadvertently) and disinformation (incorrect information purposefully spread to accomplish a set agenda) are hardly new. The internet has enabled misinformation and disinformation to spread wildly, with the hope that other voices will over time counter it.

In this session we’ll discuss differences and similarities of misinformation and disinformation in the real time Internet age, and explore whether they have expanded, whether there are any “natural checks” on the spread of misinformation and disinformation, and whether ultimately misinformation and disinformation will crowd out real information due to sheer volume.

Join us Tuesday at 12PM noon U.S. Pacific / 3pm U.S. Eastern time for an interactive discussion, and thanks for being part of “We Are The Network”!

If you do not have a Second Life account and would like a quick start to attend the session, please contact me for more information.

Best regards,

Joel
