summer story: Keton Kakkar (Swarthmore ’19), the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society

Posted August 30th, 2016 at 9:34 am.

This summer I interned at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.  Specifically, I worked with the Lumen Database, which, in the name of transparency, maintains a record of takedown requests for online materials.  For Lumen I studied and blogged about issues of copyright law and began a research project on Twitter’s Periscope.  Along with this, I attended weekly intern talks and learned about topics such as digital security and the semantic web. This past spring I was enrolled in Harvard’s online course in copyright law, CopyrightX, which helped to spark my interest in this field.
