 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,
 NOV 10

 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
 South, NYC
 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
 and illuminating.

 ISOC-NY EVENT: BUILDING TOMORROW'S BROADBAND NOV 17 2010

 building tomorrow's broadband infrastructure to create an abundance of
 bandwidth that could one day make these issues moot.

 Date: Wednesday, November 17, 2010
 Time: 7-9 pm
 Place: Room 201 Warren Weaver Hall 251 Mercer St NYC (just southeast of
 Washington Square)
 Webcast: http://livestream.com/isocny

 access to the buildin

 TIM WU 'THE MASTER SWITCH' OUT NOW!

 Columbia Law Professor Tim Wu's new book "The Master Switch: The Rise and
 Fall of Information Empires" is out now. In the book Wu extends his Net
 Neutrality arguments to their logical conclusion: that a "Separations
 Principle" is necessary to preserve communication freedoms.

 Video of his launch "pizza party" at Columbia last week:

 There is still time to catch him at one of his local appearances promoting
 the book:
