NETinst conference

Last Friday, I was at the NETinst conference on the Network Economics at NYU. Most of the papers were on modeling demand for games, licensed software issues and competition. The keynote speaker was David Heiner, VP in Microsoft that I really enjoyed his talk about Microsoft's future platforms and strategies. The whole conference had a very smooth flow and researchers came from Europe and the US, networked most with some guys from Harvard and Spain that had an interesting model on P2P networks, looking forward to bring them in the UltraBB conference at Columbia in June.

Professor N. Economides has a Call for Proposals, funded from his Institute up to $15k for summer research. Whoever might be interested..
Nick is a very interesting guy that knows everything about Microsoft's current and history, has strong relations with them and gets also funding.
