OneWebDay 2010 NYCThe 5th annual OneWebDay global celebration will take place on Wednesday September 22 2010. Two events are planned for the day in New York City. Two further events will occur over the course of the rest of the week. Join the NYC group at



Wed Sep 22 2010: 1.30pm – 2.30pm
Harlem Internet Computer Access Project

The Chauncey Hooper Towers
10 West 138th Street
Harlem, USA 10037 (map)

At this event we plan to meet up with some of the seniors who have been learning Internet skills through this valuable program, and to introduce them to the new NYCwiki neighborhood initiative. It is hoped they can be persuaded to contribute to the project their memories, and even photographs of their mementos, of the good old days.


Wed Sep 22 2010: 5 pm – 6.45 pm
ISOC-NY OneWebDay 2010

Warren Weaver Hall NYU – Rm. 512
251 Mercer St, NYC 10012 (map)

At this event Alex Goldman will make a presentation on this year’s OneWebDay theme of recognizing three core Internet principles:

  • The end-to-end principle
  • Open Internetworking
  • The Internet Model

This will be followed by an open discussion on the state of the Internet, and also the development of OneWebDay itself.


Thu Sep 23 2010: 8.30 am – 7.30pm
Open Hardware Summit

New York Hall of Science.
47-01 111th Street Queens, NY 11368 (map)

The devices that attach to the Internet are as important as the network itself. The freedom to develop new devices requires the same kind of open generative frameworks that have broken open the programming world. A prelude to the Maker Faire that will happen in the same venue over the weekend, at this – the first conference of its kind – open source hardware producers will come together to hammer out some of the basics.

Other OneWebDay activities will be happening around the world – check for details.

One specially interesting event is this:
One Web Day 2010 Global Conversation –
The group is organizing a global conversation on One Web Day 2010 at “”. People addressing this SIP URI from any Internet connected hardware or software SIP Phone will get connected to each other. The plan calls for greeters to hang out at and organize connections into smaller sets conversations. The project allows people without access to a live OneWebDay event to participate, and we encourage people to participate in both the Global Conversation and live events to the extent possible.
