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
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.
