Webby 2020 Trend Report: Overwrite Tomorrow

How the global pandemic created an indispensable Internet, and ignited the urgency to build a better future.

This year’s Webby Trend Report, Overwrite Tomorrow, examines how the global shutdown has accelerated innovation across the Internet, and our lives. The work we’ve seen communities create online—mutual aid networks, virtual events, social media series—have become a launching pad for what the future can hold.

We look at how the Internet has accelerated innovation across areas like entertainment, healthcare, education, our personal connections, and more. Dive in for insights on how consumers are responding via a survey of 3,000 people across the U.S., conducted in partnership with YouGov, as well as interviews with industry leaders: Bob Boilen, Creative Director, NPR, Tiny Desk; Monica Cravotta, VP of Marketing, WP Engine; Deborah Hyun, Sr. Vice President of Global Marketing, Headspace; Bob Galmarini, Sr. Director of Brand Design, Slack; Rahna Epting, Executive Director, MoveOn; Andrew Greiner, Executive Editor, North America, YouGov; and Jorge Valenzuela, Education Coach, Author and Advocate. 

The research presented in the report is included in this year’s Overwrite Series, which will include virtual thought leadership events and talks presented with our sponsors WP Engine, Slack and YouGov.
