Subject: [isoc-ny] ISOC-NY Events this week : ICANN Forum ; Memefactory ; Iran
& Twitter. Plus other news
A lot going on at ISOC-NY this week.
First and foremost tonight Thurs 10/8 we are holding an ISOC-NY Forum
at NYU on current changes in the way ICANN is set up. This is going to
be a lively discussion. We are flying in Dr. Milton Mueller, founder
of the Noncommercial Users Constituency, just for the occasion. If you
can't make it you can still watch the webcast live.
Then tomorrow Friday 10/9 Free Culture @NYU are putting on an
extravaganza - 'Memefactory' - that will delve deeply into the world
of Keyboard Cats and similar contemporary phenomena. This is going to
be a verrry popular so get there early to grab a good seat.
On a more serious note, at 2pm on Saturday 10/10 at Queens Central
Library, Ali Emami will speak on the topic =91Twitter and the Iranian
Election Controversy=92 - Ali was originally lined up to speak on
OneWebDay but couldn't make it but we still very much want to hear his
report. This will be videotaped for a later webcast.
Speaking of video on demand - there's a good clip out of Geneva this
week of ISOC Chairman & CEO Lynn St. Amour pontificating on the future
of the Internet. ISOC was there participating in ITU Telecom World
2009, co-hosting the Internet Pavilion with the theme "Open Internet:
Open standards - open processes - open innovation", as well as
sponsoring multiple forums. At the Youth Forum ISOC launched the new
'Next Generation Leaders Programme' - a fellowship program for young
up and comers.
The other big news of the week was that NYC has officially put out an
request for proposals to acquire and run a .nyc top level domain.
ISOC-NY was happy to see that the city intends to, as long proposed by
our friends at Connecting.NYC, make it a 'closed' domain with plenty
of second level names reserved for community use, and verification
that all registrants have a "nexus" to the city.
