7:20  Patent Absurdity - movie screening
        a new movie from the Free Software Foundation

      Patent Absurdity explores the case of software patents and the
      history of judicial activism that led to their rise, and the
      harm being done to software developers and the wider economy.
      The film is based on a series of interviews conducted during the
      Supreme Court's review of in re Bilski — a case that could
      have profound implications for the patenting of software. The
      Court's decision is due soon...

      With interviews from Eben Moglen, Dan Bricklin, Karen Sandler,
      Richard Stallman and others.      

8:50  New York Minute

      By popular request: bring your ideas, questions, advertisements,

      introductions and announcements.
