Speaker
*President Toomas Hendrik Ilves* -  Republic of Estonia
 
  During the Enlightenment, John Locke offered a democratic solution to the 
Hobbesian nightmare of a war of all against all: a social contract to 
regulate the relationship between the government and free citizens. We now 
need a new "Lockean contract" for the modern digital society. The President 
of Estonia, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, talks about the solutions found in a 
small, high-tech European democracy and calls forth Locke and Voltaire of 
the digital age.

This event is co-sponsored by the CDDRL Program on Liberation Technology, 
the Department of Communications,
Stanford Libraries, the Freeman Spogli Institute and the Europeans 
Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Stanford Engineering. 

A special thank you to the Clark Kelly McCatchy Lecture Fund for support of 
this event.
