Dmitry-boston has been rather quiet lately, but the issues haven't gone
away.  I've still been talking to people/classes and writing letters: it's
been almost five months since Dmitry was arrested, five months away from
his country, home, and family.

Jonah Jenkins at the Rotch Library here at MIT has been organizing a
Librarians' conference on Fair Use issues; I'll be there assistent in some
still-vague way (perhaps in on the panel discussion).  It's at MIT, this
Tuesday; Jonah told me, "If there's anyone you'd like to invite to just
show up, without registering, that's perfectly fine," so I'm inviting all
of you!  It should be an excellent chance to network with librarians and
figure out how best to take the next step forward in our advocacy on these
issues.  The announcement is attached: hope to see lots of you there!
[If you can't make the full day, the program schedule is at
 perhaps you'd like to catch one or two of the speakers individually.]
