The Politics of Technology
What Price New York City Wireless: The Politics of Technology
New York City Council Member Gale Brewer, Chair of the Technology Committee, will be joining the Internet Society of New York, on March 1, to discuss broadband and public access issues in a public forum. Discussion will include pending legislation and an update of policy development and other work being done by the committee. There will be time for Q&A.
[editor's note: The earlier proposal tendered by Tom Lowenhaupt of Queen's Community Board #3 regarding a .nyc top level domain initiative will probably be discussed in view of the expectation that ICANN will soon act to introduce new gTLDs. Tom's proposal was concurrent with the .berlin initiative championed by Dirk Krischenowski -- see Berlin May Get Its Own Domain].
The event is free, open to the public and the site is fully accessible.
