On October 30 – 31, 2013, The New York Review of Books held a conference called "Power, Privacy, and the Internet," taking a look at the role of the Internet both as a vehicle of political and cultural dissent and, in the hands of the state, as a weapon of repression and control. The recordings from the event have recently been released where listeners can stream or download the audio.

Governments, Corporations and Hackers: The Internet and Threats to the Privacy and Dignity of the Citizen
The Internet and the Future of the Press
The Internet, Repression and Dissent
The Internet, the Book, the University and the Library
The Internet, the Economy and Production
Keynote speakers included Robert Darnton, Librarian of Harvard, Joseph Lelyveld, former Editor of the New York Times. and Ken Roth, from Human Rights Watch.
