 Subject: [Computers_and_society_announcements] Exciting week of activities at 
NYU / Wash Square
 Sender: address@hidden

 The next 9 days are filled with opportunities for anyone interested in the 
 web and society.  My Computers and Society course will host a lecture by 
 Tim Westergren, founder of Pandora, on September 24th from 3:30 to 4:45. 
 He'll be discussing the Future of Music and the State of Licensing Today. 
 The lecture is free, open to the public and sponsored by NYU ACM Chapter, 
 the Internet Society of New York, NYU Free Culture, and WinC.  Mark the 
 date -- a flyer will follow next week.

 Everything else is related to OneWebDay.org, and annual day to celebrate and
 protect the internet.  You can see the full details for the New York events
