At this year’s Aspen Ideas Festival, we asked a group of people who work in media, design, and the arts if the Internet is inspiring or stifling. For Kelly Leonard, of the improv institution The Second City, the advantage of the Internet is open communication: “The Internet is all about dialogue. It is allowing us to talk to everyone all over the world,” he says. “I did a Reddit this morning, and I talked to hundreds of people that I’ve never met in my life.” Other panelists include Bran Ferren, Jane Chu, Maurice Ashley, Suleika Jaouad, Tim Brown, Anne Libera, Brian Grazer, and Lil Buck.
