    We have designed our civilization based on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up inour faces.” – Carl Sagan

    Never has a clear comprehension of the technology surrounding us been more critical than today. We tell machines what to do and hope they’ll do it, and when they don’t they leave us vulnerable to technological accidents and acts of malice we cannot comprehend. This event will bring together technologists from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds to explore technology on a granular level, from perspectives ranging from user behavior in virtual environments to the exploitation of functions at the hardware level.

    ISOC-NY Event: Cyrus Farivar – The Internet of Elsewhere 5/4 NYU

    In the book Farivar explores the Internet’s history and effects in four distinct and, to some, surprising societies — Iran, Estonia, South Korea, and Senegal. He profiles Web pioneers in these countries and, at the same time, surveys the environments in which they each work. After all, contends Farivar, despite California’s great success in creating the Internet and spawning companies like Apple and Google, in some areas the United States is still years behind other nations.

    Open Source Database Licensing Panel – NYC 4/21 

    The Institute for Information Law & Policy and the International
    Intellectual Property Society present: Open Source Database Licensing

    Date: Wednesday, April 21, 2010
    Time: 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
    Location: NY Law School 185 West Broadway NYC Room W201
    RSVP: Naomi Allen at naomi.allen*at*nyls.edu. Refreshments will be served.

    Database owners are increasingly seeking ways to make their data
    available so that others can contribute to and build on their work. This
    “open data” movement emphasizes the importance of sharing data for both
    scientific development and humanitarian response. The willingness of
    database owners to make their data available for re-use depends on their
    ability to impose conditions on that release, which requires
    consideration of the varying levels of copyright protection afforded to
    databases across jurisdictions.

    Please join us for a panel presentation focusing on the challenges
    associated with balancing the advantages of “open data” with the need
    for database owners to impose conditions on release. The speakers will
    address the current state of copyright protection afforded to databases
    and strategies for encouraging database sharing.

    NYCInfoLaw Reading Group: International Internet Regulation

    Tuesday April 13, @ 7PM, Room 211, Cardozo Law School, 55 Fifth Ave.
    The Internet’s global scale means that there are as many different approaches to regulating it as there are countries. Recent disputes over privacy in Italy, censorship in China and discord over ACTA provisions have highlighted these tensions. Can we ensure that the Internet remains a reliable global tool without compromising the differing values of participating countries?
    Readings (choose one or more from each category):

    Both events are free and open to the public.

    The  Cardozo School of Law is at 55 5th Avenue NYC (bet 12th & 13th St)

    FAILfaire NYC – 4/14 #Failfare 

    FAILfaire features projects using mobiles and ICTs in international development that have, to put it simply, been a #FAIL. Busted, kaputt. Tongue firmly in cheek, we take a close look at what didn’t work and why the projects failed amidst the ICT4D hype we all are subjected to (and sometimes contributors to). We believe that only if we understand what DOESN’T WORK in this field and stop pushing our failures under the rug, can we collectively learn and get better, more effective, and have greater impact as we go forward.

    The inaugural FAILfaire will be held in New York City on April 14th, 2010 from 5:00-7:30 pm. We are very grateful to The Open Planning Project (TOPP) for hosting us in their beautiful SoHo loft space. Please register here!


    5:00 Welcome and drinks
    5:30 FAIL-slam: the #FAILfaire Talks showcasing failure in ICT and mobiles in development
    6:30 Open Discussion

    Hear the best-informed, best-known authorities on what the second version of the Google Book Search Settlement would mean for writers if it is approved by the court.  The second opt-out deadline is coming up a week after this seminar, so there is still time to figure out what’s best for you, personally, and then to act. This workshop will focus on the settlement and writers — just writers.

    Much of the public debate has settled on other aspects, like orphan books, yet we writers are still confused about what the proposed, new Book Rights Registry would mean for us.

    Sponsored jointly by the American Society of Journalists and Authors, ASJA, the National Writers Union, NWU, and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, SFWA.

    FREE but please tell us if you’re coming, either by calling 212-997-0947 or a quick e-mail to asjaoffice AT asja.org. (Put “Google settlement” in the subject line.)

    via Google Book Settlement Workshop in NYC on Jan. 20th.
