The Internet: Gutenberg Press of the 21st Century?

Celebrate liberty and fellowship with other liberty lovers on January 24th 5:30pm to 7:30pm at The Dublin House (1850 Dominion Way, Colorado Springs) enjoying Tavern Style Politics and Activism in the Tradition of our Founding Fathers.

In its obituary of internet pioneer Michael Hart, the founder of Project Gutenberg, the New York Times quoted Hart as saying that the internet has the potential of “overturning all established power structures.” The parallels between the Gutenberg press’s history of overturning power structures over the last 500 years and the Internet’s proven ability to do the same in our time are staggering. We will review some of those impacts that the Gutenberg press had, and that the Internet is now having. Printed copies of this presentation will be for sale as well.

Bob Adelmann will present tonight’s topic and then open the floor to respectful discourse in the best political format in town;  tavern style politics.  So come on out tonight and enjoy the discussion. You won’t be disappointed.

The evening’s entertainment will include the infamous 30 second soapbox, trivia and awesome happy hour deals along with a door prize or two.

Our next LOTR gathering:
February 14th:
5:30pm @ The Dublin House “Valentines day LOTR special: Ladies night!”
