University Hosts Global Summit

Steve Case of America Online spoke on Creating Tools for Industrial Governance.

Once again, George Mason University was the gathering place for technology leaders from throughout the world as it opened its doors to the 2000 Global Internet Summit on March 12 through 14. The summit was hosted by Governor James S. Gilmore III and Congressman Tom Bliley, chair of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Commerce.

More than 1,200 people attended the event, which included international corporate executives, government officials, and policy and technology experts in discussions on critical issues raised by the global expansion of the Internet and the policies needed to deal with them.
The Johnson Center served as an exhibit area for sponsors.

Presented by George Mason's National Center for Technology and the Law and the School of Law, the conference was held in the Concert Hall on the Fairfax Campus. Featured speakers included Steve Case, chairman of America Online; Vinton Cerf, considered by many to be one of the fathers of the Internet; U.S. Secretary of Commerce William Daley; and Al Berkeley, president of NASDAQ. Transcripts of the presentations are available on the summit's website at
