Event description

Description

At a time when information is more readily accessible than ever, it's become more difficult to discern fact from fiction. While the internet has played a vital role in streamlining our access to information, is it possible that there is too much information for us to process effectively?

Enjoy lunch while Lee Rainie shares his thoughts on how the internet has shaped our day-to-day lives and how we interact with the world around us.

About Lee Rainie

Lee Rainie is the director of internet and technology research at Pew Research Center, one of the nation’s leading think tanks. Under his leadership, the Center has issued more than 650 reports based on surveys that examine people’s online activities and the internet’s role in their lives. The American Sociological Association gave Rainie its award for “excellence in the reporting on social issues” in 2014 and described his work as the “most authoritative source of reliable data on the use and impact of the internet and mobile connectivity.”

Rainie is a co-author of Networked: The new social operating system and five books about the future of the internet that are drawn from the Center’s research. He gives several dozen speeches a year to government officials, media leaders, scholars and students, technology executives, librarians, and nonprofit groups about the changing media ecosystem.

Prior to launching Pew Research Center’s technology research, Rainie was managing editor of U.S. News & World Report. He is a graduate of Harvard University and has a master’s degree in political science from Long Island University.
