 Subject: [free-culture] To Do: Free Culture in NYC and other goodies (meeting 
Tuesday @ 8pm)

 Thanks to everyone who came out to our meeting with Jamie Boyle
 on Wednesday. He really enjoyed our group and loved all of the
 questions and participation. More speakers and talks are in the
 works (with bigger rooms and more food), so keep an eye an out...

 I figured I'd post some Free Culture type events in NYC happening
 this week that you might consider going to.

 First, there's Lawrence Lessig and Chris Anderson at the NYPL on
 Thursday night. Buy your tickets now, Lessig's talks usually sell
 out.. Check out
 to buy tickets and more info. Chris Anderson just released his
 book "The Long Tail" about how the Internet caters to the 80% of
 the market that Walmart and Virgin don't care about. It should be
 a great talk.. I'll be there.

 Friday at Irving Plaza, Creative Commons is hosting their New
 York fundraiser event. Diplo, Girl Talk and Peeping Tom (Mike
 Patton's newest thing). Tickets are $25 and the event is part of
 Wired's NextFest. Check out more info here : I'll be
 manning the CC booth from 8-9pm, so make sure to drop by and say
 hi if you come.

 On to some Free Culture @ NYU news..

 We're very lucky to be hosting the first of many international
 DRM protests at the Apple Store Midtown on Saturday at 3pm. We're
 going to be handing out flyers, and educating consumers about the
 evils of DRM, and more specifically -- the DRM in Apple's iTunes
 store. I'm also working on getting about 20 yellow and bright
 green Hazmat suits for us to wear (because, as you know, DRM is
 dangerous) from the guys. FYI: There should
 be a lot of media there..

 And on one final note: We're going to be meeting tomorrow night
 at 8pm to discuss these plans and work on the flyer for Saturday
 as well as talk about copyright. Please come if you're interested
 in any of these topics -- we love our new members.
