Your Mac Life, the Internet show about all things Mac, has a “really big show” tonight, with topics ranging from PowerBooks to MacHack to Macworld New York.
Sandy Green, Apple’s director of PowerBook marketing, will be on hand to talk about, and answer questions concerning, the revamped PowerBook line. John Penn, the conference chair of MacHack, the annual conference for “leading edge developers.” The 17th annual MacHack gathering is coming to Dearborn, MI, June 20th-22nd. Penn will talk about what MacHack is and, among other things, why it starts at midnight.
Censorship is back in the news after a federal court in Philadelphia declared the 2000 Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) unconstitutional. At the center of the controversy is what software can and can’t do and what role the Net plays in censorship, your rights and children’s safety. Jonathan Wallace, attorney and co-author of “Sex, Laws and Cyberspace,” a book on Internet censorship and a principal at The Censorware Project, will talk to King about the issues.
If you have any questions for tonight’s guest, e-mail them to King. As always, Peter Cohen, my MacCentral compadre and Macworld magazine’s Game Guru, will also be on hand with the latest Mac gaming news.
Wednesday’s show continues the Official Your Mac Life Macworld Expo New York 2002 Countdown. King will take another look at what IDG has on tap for this July Listeners will hear more details about the hotel special Your Mac Life and IDG have for Expo goers. Also, on tonight’s edition you can learn how to get a free Exhibit Pass for the MWNY show floor. MWNY will be held July 15-19 at the Jacob J. Javits Center in New York City.
