Additional Speaker on Friday

We're also going to be joined by Brian Fishman, From The Combating Terrorism Center at West Point Military Academy. He is an expert on terrorist networks and will be speaking on Al-Qa'ida ideas related to Utopias and the Internet. Though there is no reading set directly on the subject it will build on the already assigned items.

Olly - Thanks for the critique of John Perry Barlow's statement. It's a point worth discussing.

Rebecca - You're right Sunstein really hit a nerve when he wrote The Daily We. I know we'll discuss this point too. Interestingly there are a number of responses (not assigned) but may be interesting to read here.

Looking forward to talking on Friday. We're still working on the technical aspects and if anyone has a lap top to bring or even a cell phone that has a speaker phone it might be useful. feel free to email me with details if you do. (teg2102 (at) columbia (dot) edu)
