Subject: [isoc-ny] Broadband events @NYU | Tim Wu, Rushkoff videos
Alright now, plenty of action this week - a top speaker on Internet
Architecture at NYU Law tomorrow, TiM Wu's ongoing launch of his new book
'The Master Switch', and next Wednesday sees an ISOC-NY discussion - on
radical approaches to broadband - that will also be webcast live.

TALK ON INTERNET ARCHITECTURE, INNOVATION AND NETWORK NEUTRALITY AT NYU,
Barbara van Schewick, Associate Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and
Director of Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society, will
discuss her recently released and widely praised book, Internet Architecture
and Innovation, at NYU Law School on Wednesday Nov 10 2010.
When: Wednesday, November 10, 2:30pm-3:30pm.
Where: Vanderbilt Hall, Room, 216 NYU Law School, 40 Washington Square
Who: ISOC-NY community welcome. Photo id required.
Professor Marvin Ammori has described the book as "essential reading for
anyone interested in Internet policy-and probably for anyone interested in
the law, economics, technology, or start-ups". The book analyzes how the
Internet's internal structure, or architecture, has fostered innovation in
the past; why this engine of innovation is under threat; why the "market"
alone won't protect Internet innovation; and which features of the
Internet's architecture we need to preserve so that the Internet continues
to serve as an engine of innovation in the future.
Whether you are tired of or confused by the network neutrality debate, or
simply wondering what is at stake, van Schewick's talk will be refreshing
