e-summit conference to consider Jeffersonian principles in the Internet Age

Power, safety and happiness -- topics on which Jefferson wrote will be considered in the new light of the virtual world at the "e-summit@virginia" conference on Grounds Nov. 12 and 13. The forum, featuring more than 30 U.Va. alumni who have established or have major roles in online services or companies, will address the Internet revolution and its impact on the way we do business, the way we communicate and the way we live. Participants will talk about the skills, abilities and values needed to succeed in the virtual world and explore the perils and opportunities that lie ahead. All sessions are free and open to the public. The plenary sessions and some of the concurrent sessions will be video-streamed live onto the Internet at www.virginia.edu/e-summit. The conference, presented by the Office of the President and Virginia 2020: Agenda for the Third Century, is sponsored by PricewaterhouseCoopers and Fortune magazine. For information, call 924-1366.
