Julia Vallera, of the Mozilla Foundation, moderates a discussion about the state of the internet and how it impacts Vermont communities with Mary Danko, of Fletcher Free Library, and Abbie Tykocki, of Burlington Telecom, along with other local stakeholders. Session participants get an introduction to the current methodologies that Mozilla Foundation uses to gauge internet health across key indicators, such as openness, inclusion, privacy, security, decentralization, and others. We explore how these issues and more affect the diverse communities in and around Burlington, Vermont. What strengths, weaknesses, and disparities do we see? What steps can we take to address gaps and vulnerabilities that foster a healthy digital civil society?
