Event 13

Esther Paniagua in conversation with Miguel Aguilar

A world without Internet?

Venue: Torre Caleido. Campus IE University Madrid

That a majority of the population is dependent on the social media, or that the Internet forms an essential part of our lives is no news. Yet what would happen if the Net went down? Some specialists do ask themselves this question, and one of them is Esther Paniagua. In her book, Error 404, she thinks about whether we are prepared for a world without Internet, and covers the chaos that could break out in the case of an Internet interruption. She also reveals who the guardians of the Web truly are. The book is not a dystopia, but rather an essay aiming to anticipate something that may happen, to allow us to prepare before it is too late. Paniagua is an independent journalist who specializes in science, technology and artificial intelligence.

She will talk to the publisher Miguel Aguilar, manager of imprints such as Taurus and Debate.
