 Subject: [isoc-ny] ISOC-NY Events this week : ICANN Forum ; Memefactory ; Iran 
& Twitter. Plus other news

 A lot going on at ISOC-NY this week.

 First and foremost tonight Thurs 10/8 we are holding an ISOC-NY Forum
 at NYU on current changes in the way ICANN is set up. This is going to
 be a lively discussion. We are flying in Dr. Milton Mueller, founder
 of the Noncommercial Users Constituency, just for the occasion. If you
 can't make it you can still watch the webcast live.

 Then tomorrow Friday 10/9 Free Culture @NYU are putting on an
 extravaganza - 'Memefactory' - that will delve deeply into the world
 of Keyboard Cats and similar contemporary phenomena. This is going to
 be a verrry popular so get there early to grab a good seat.

 On a more serious note, at 2pm on Saturday 10/10 at Queens Central
 Library, Ali Emami will speak on the topic =91Twitter and the Iranian
 Election Controversy=92 - Ali was originally lined up to speak on
 OneWebDay but couldn't make it but we still very much want to hear his
 report. This will be videotaped for a later webcast.

 Speaking of video on demand - there's a good clip out of Geneva this
 week of ISOC Chairman & CEO Lynn St. Amour pontificating on the future
 of the Internet. ISOC was there participating in ITU Telecom World
 2009, co-hosting the Internet Pavilion with the theme "Open Internet:
 Open standards - open processes - open innovation", as well as
 sponsoring multiple forums. At the Youth Forum ISOC launched the new
 'Next Generation Leaders Programme' - a fellowship program for young
 up and comers.

 The other big news of the week was that NYC has officially put out an
 request for proposals to acquire and run a .nyc top level domain.
 ISOC-NY was happy to see that the city intends to, as long proposed by
 our friends at Connecting.NYC, make it a 'closed' domain with plenty
 of second level names reserved for community use, and verification
 that all registrants have a "nexus" to the city.
