At the Berkman Center,
we’re gearing up for a busy fall. Students return shortly, some
as early as this week-end, and new fellows are honing research plans
for the year. We hope to roll out new ways to expand our reach
and to invite more people into our various initiatives through the use
of technology and some more public events.
One thing I’m particularly focused on and excited about: our co-sponsorship of the State of Play III conference.
The brainchild of NYLS prof and Berkman partner Beth Noveck, SoP has
been the coolest conference on the cyberlaw/policy circuit for the past
few years — focused on gaming and virtual worlds. This year’s
version promises to be the best yet. It’ll be in NY, primarily on
October 8, 2005. Through this event, we plan to extend our work
on the Digital Media Project into the converged/converging worlds of music, film, images, and games.
