Tonight March 25,[masked]pm at NYU ISOC-NY will host NYU Prof. Jinyang
Li in a talk about the use of distributed systems, and particularly
the use of the Kaleidoscope Firefox plug-in, in circumventing
censorship. All are welcome, in person or online.

March 18, 2010 was registration day for the Harlem Internet Computer
Access Program, partly funded by the ISOC Community Grants Programme.
There was an excellent turnout with more than 20 enrollees, all
seniors, including a vivacious 90-year-old. Classes begin March 30.­

On April[masked] an all day symposium is planned for respondents to
New York City's request for proposals to manage a .nyc top level
domain on it's behalf. Thus far representatives of CORE and Top Level
Domain Holdings are lined up. We expect to add a session to discuss
possible community aspects of .nyc, and, if we have time one to
discuss the still open Vertical Integration issue. This will be of
interest to any community contemplating applying for their own tld.

NYU have confirmed that we will be able to once again sponsor a
Computers & Society speaker series this fall, as we did two years ago.
 It's going to be hard to beat the spectacular line-up we presented
then, but we are working on it. Again assisted by ISOC Community
Programme funds. Suggestions / nominations for speakers / topics

ISOC-NY has established 'user group' status with technical publisher
O'Reilly. This will enable our members to get discounts on books, and
we have just received an initial shipment of free samples. If
