Archived meetings of the 2000 Global Internet Summit are now available online. The summit was held from March 12 to 14 in the Concert Hall on the Fairfax Campus.

Gov. James Gilmore and Chairman Tom Bliley of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Commerce cohosted the summit, which presented a variety of perspectives from those most affected by the Internet–industries, governments, and consumers. The summit examined the government’s role in Internet regulation and identified hindrances to its growth, and also examined how the Internet is creating novel forms of self-governance as it adapts to global market, legal, societal, and cultural demands.

Attended by more than 900 senior-level business executives and government officials from 30 countries, the summit also sought to examine the framework that must be fostered to encourage the growth of Internet and e-commerce worldwide.

The streaming video is made possible by HealthAnswers, a diversified electronic healthcare company, and its wholly owned subsidiary, MCM, which specializes in broadcasting medical conferences.
