One of the things I’m most excited about at the Berkman Center is the largely informal speaker series that we’ve been running. Most sessions take place at lunchtime in Baker House and are quite informal in nature. Occasionally, the lectures are on a larger stage, as when Yossi Vardi visited us last week. For instance, today, we had a visit from Dr. Tony Feghali, who spoke about Lebanon and e-Readiness, hosted by Colin Maclay, who works on ICT and developing countries. Wendy Koslow took good notes, which was particularly helpful to me, since I missed it. Most of the sessions relate to Internet law, policy and/or technologies. The idea is to create a sense of intellectual community here at the Berkman Center and to draw in people from elsewhere at the university, within the local community, and beyond.
