Some of you may live in the NYC area and therefore might be interested in attending this event a reader just brought to my attention.
David Boies will be at the 92nd Street Y on September 20, at 8:15 PM. He will be interviewed by Lawrence Lessig. A newsletter about it says he will discuss his career including the MS case and the Gore/Florida "recount frenzy". He probably can't talk about the SCO case much, since it is ongoing, so don't get your hopes up on that.
Cost is $25 for the one lecture. It is part of a 3-part series ($65) with Jeff Bezos (Nov 7) and Ray Kurzweil (Mar 23 '05) as the others. It is sponsored by Wired magazine, so you generally get a free issue as you enter, I'm told. While the Y does sell tickets on their website (with a surcharge), it isn't listed there yet. Buy by phone (same surcharge) at 212-415-5500.
If any of you do go, please take notes. If they permit recording, please, with permission only, do so. If, afterward, you get a chance, ask the principals also if it's all right for us to do a transcript. We need permission from both of them and from the Y or Wired. But notes are always legal, and you can send me your impressions. There are no IP chains on such thoughts yet.
