Taped by WGBH Forum Network, information technology expert José-Marie Griffiths visited the New England Chapter of the Association for Information Science & Technology to discuss if the Information Age can survive the next twenty five years.

Drawing upon her experience with the National Science Board, Griffiths describes the forces that have come into play given the rise of big data, including public policy and security concerns.  Touching upon new laws for Russian bloggers (as of May 2014), the Edward Snowden-National Security Agency reveal, and Google, Griffiths unpacks what the accessibility of personal data means for the average person.
