Harvard Law School Professor John Palfrey ’01 and Urs Gasser LL.M. ’03, lecturer on law and executive director of Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, launched their latest book, “Interop: The Promise and Perils of Highly Interconnected Systems,” at a May 30 event hosted by the Berkman Center, the Harvard Law School Library and the Harvard Book Store.
Palfrey and Gasser discussed their theory of interoperability, which they have described as “the art and science of working together,” and offered real-world case studies and examples.
Full coverage, including video of the presentation, live-blog transcripts and photos, are available here. The new book also was reviewed in Nature on May 31.
Palfrey and Gasser are also the authors of the 2008 book “Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives.”
