Members of the Internet Society's New York Chapter (ISOC-NY) are actively engaged in helping form a new Augmented and Virtual Reality Chapter. The first associated event will be a joint meetup with the ARNY - Augmented Reality New York this Wednesday April 24 2013. This is a well-attended monthly event with a full program of briefings and demos, and should be an eye opener for anyone wishing to learn more about this field.
