It was mentioned in @NY last week, and I'm sure people from the dark recesses of the Alley's companies came out for NYNMA's panel on "The Internet & Public Policy: Who's in Control?" on Wednesday, June 10. Sun Microsystems hosted a reception and then Saul Hansell (tech. & e-commerce reporter, The New York Times) moderated a discussion between Esther Dyson, (Edventure Holdings), Lawrence Lessig, (Berkman Professor, Harvard Law School), and Ira Magaziner, (Senior Advisor to the President for Policy Development). There are 13 bills in congress now, designed to lasso the web and there were intelligent and provoking points discussing whether it needs controlling and who is creating and governing public policy.
