[If you know of people who may be interested in this meeting, please
feel free to forward this message to them.]
The second luncheon meeting of the Digital Commerce Society of New
York (DCS-NY), will be held on Tuesday, October 13th at 12:00. If you
are interested in attending, please RSVP and send in your check (as
explained below) IMMEDIATELY. If we don't _receive_ your check by
Friday, we cannot guarantee that we can seat you. (Normally I wouldn't
be sending out a reminder this late, but we've had a large influx of
inquiries in the last 24 hours.)
This Month's Luncheon Speaker:
Stuart Feldman, IBM Institute for Advanced Commerce, IBM T.J.
Watson Research Center
Topic: Future Directions in Electronic Commerce
Stuart Feldman will delve into a half dozen major themes for long-term
research in electronic commerce. These areas will take years to resolve
at a research level and even longer to achieve full impact in the world
economy. They include privacy, the evolving marketplace on several time
scales, the rise of dynamic businesses and electronic haggling, improved
relationships to customers, and the systems underpinnings needed to
support the vast new opportunities and capabilities of electronic
commerce. Stuart Feldman is Director of IBM's Institute for Advanced
Commerce. The Institute is dedicated to creating new technologies for
support of e-commerce as well as pursuing fundamental issues in
e-commerce. He is also the author of the original "make" and "f77."
WHAT IS DCS-NY?
As some of you probably know, Robert Hettinga has been running a group
called the Digital Commerce Society of Boston for over three years.
DCSB meets once a month for lunch at the Harvard Club in Boston to
hear a speaker and discuss the implications of rapidly emerging
internet and cryptographic technologies on finance and commerce --
"Digital Commerce", in short.
The Digital Commerce Society of New York (DCS-NY) is a spin-off of
DCSB. We intend to meet the second Tuesday of each month for lunch
at the Harvard Club in New York, and conduct meetings much like those
of DCSB. Our organizing meeting in September was attended by a wide
variety of professionals involved in the business, technical and legal
sides of the emerging world of digital commerce.
If you are interested in attending our next luncheon meeting, please
follow the directions located below. If you merely wish to be added to
our e-mail meeting announcements list, you may send your e-mail
address to "[email protected]".

procuring the venue for our meetings.
