Herdict: The Verdict of the Herd

Jonathan Zittrain and the Herdict Team

Tuesday, February 10, 12:30 pm
Berkman Center, 23 Everett Street, second floor
RSVP required for those attending in person (rsvp@cyber.law.harvard.edu)
This event will be webcast live at 12:30 pm ET.

Herdict Web is a natural progression from the OpenNet Initiative. Whereas ONI views Internet filtering through an academic lens, Herdict uses crowdsourcing to learn about and present a real time view of the experiences of users around the globe.  We are currently in a "friends and family beta" stage; in other words, we're hoping that our friends will try Herdict Web and let us know what they think.  At the Herdict luncheon, we will present the tool, discuss challenges and concerns, and allow opportunities for discussion.

Jonathan Zittrain and the Herdict Team will present Herdict Web at this luncheon.

About Herdict

Herdict is a project of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. Herdict is a portmanteau of 'herd' and 'verdict' and seeks to show the verdict of the users (the herd). Herdict Web seeks to gain insight into what users around the world are experiencing in terms of web accessibility; or in other words, determine the herdict.

The brainchild of Professor Jonathan Zittrain, Herdict Web is a natural progression from the OpenNet Initiative. Whereas OpenNet views Internet filtering through an academic lens, Herdict uses crowdsourcing to learn about and present a real time view of the experiences of users around the globe.
