    Vint is well-known as the real father of the Internet. But this panel he’ll be chairing is about another way of overcoming communication barriers -curing hearing loss. Stanford has made great progress towards cures. I’m privileged to be on the panel, too. Come if you can, especially if your or someone you know has hearing loss.
