 I wanted to let you know about an upcoming event that might be of

 CITY HALL - On Wednesday, July 30th at 11:00am there will be a briefing
 from the Mayor's Office and Diamond Consultants for the Broadband
 Advisory Committee regarding the Bloomberg Administration's plans for
 bridging the digital divide in New York City.

 The Broadband Advisory Committee was established in 2005 with the
 passage of Introduction 625-A creating a joint public broadband
 commission to advise the Mayor and the City Council of New York on how
 the resources of City government can be used to stimulate the private
 market so that residents and businesses of New York City have more
 options in terms of high-speed Internet access.  The goal of the
 committee is to educate the general public about broadband and the
 newest communication technologies, and to give New York City residents
 the opportunity to comment on how the digital divide in New York City
 can be closed.  To support these efforts the Broadband Advisory
 Committee has held public Broadband Hearings in the Bronx, Brooklyn,
 Manhattan, and Queens. The Committee will hold its fifth and final
 hearing in Staten Island this fall.

 Diamond Consultants was hired by the New York City Economic Development
 Corporation to determine the breadth of the digital divide in New York
 City and develop programs and initiatives to provide greater digital
 inclusion for all residents. Chris O'Brien, a Partner in Diamond's
 Public Sector practice, will be detailing Diamond's findings and its
 recommendations for the City's next steps.

 The meeting will take place in the Committee of the Whole Room, City
 Hall, New York, NY on Wednesday, July 30th at 11:00 am. This is a public
 meeting and all are welcome to attend. For further information please
