2006/07/20 Proposed Agenda


NOTE: THIS WEEK WE ARE MEETING IN A NEW LOCATION. The Berkman Center for Internet & Society has moved to a large, yellow Victorian building at 23 Everett Street. The conference room we will use for the meetings is on the second floor. It’s number 202. It’s just across from the elevator and to the immediate right of the stairs. (No, it’s not the men’s room.) The building is a short distance from Baker House, where we used to meet.

  • Introductions
