What about the governance systems and drivers that enabled the ‘rise and fall’ of legacy technologies and services? This panel will discuss the history of technology and the impact that COVID could have on some of our most beloved legacy technologies and services.

We're On Slack

Your feedback from Season Two was to be more engaged in the Policy Crunch. For season three, we've added a Slack Workspace for the Policy Crunch Community. We will be posting updates, new events, and live-slacking each event in case you can't attend. We will also post the Zoom link, YouTube livestream link, and the recording here. 

You can use our Slack Workspace to talk about the events, ask questions, share your ideas, give us your feedback and more! To join our IOG Policy Crunch Slack Workspace, click here. We can also send you an invite if the tech mojo to join is too complicated; email us at to get an invitation to your inbox.
