Triangle Club

The Triangle Club will present its 111th annual production, "Absurd to the Wise," at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 31 and June 1, in McCarter Theatre. The student written and performed show features the famous, politically incorrect all-male kickline. For advance tickets, call 258-2787.

Building services suspends moving

All departments are asked to postpone requests for moving services until June 14. This is Building Services' busiest time of the year because of student dormitory check-out, commencement and Reunions. Every effort will be made to accommodate those who have requests requiring emergency service.

16,000 expected for Reunions

Some 16,000 people -- alumni and their families -- are expected on campus Thursday through Sunday, May 30-June 1, for Reunions activities.
    Highlights of the weekend will include: the annual P-rade throughout campus beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday; alumni-faculty forums and department open houses during the day on Friday and Saturday; and performances by groups including Quipfire!, Theatre Intime and the Triangle Club, receptions and student/alumni arch sings on Friday and Saturday evenings.
    All alumni and University representatives once again will be required to have wristbands to participate in Reunions activities in the major reunion headquarters courtyards (wristbands are not required for attending lectures or watching the P-rade). Faculty and staff who ordered wristbands in advance from the Alumni Council may pick them up from 7 to 11 p.m. each night in the Maclean House parlor (enter through the front door).

Event planned on Internet regulation

A conference on "The Future of Internet Regulation: Open Access, Private Rights and Public Values" will be presented Wednesday, May 29, in the Frist Campus Center Multipurpose Room by the Program in Law and Public Affairs.
    The conference will bring together leading lawyers, policymakers and academics to discuss legal responses to the Internet age. It will run from 9 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.
    Over the last decade, the Internet has transformed our way of life, bringing with it some legal challenges. Judges, legislators and attorneys must wrestle with questions about how to secure personal rights of privacy and ownership while also capitalizing on the promise of new opportunities to improve the public's access to information.
    The conference is organized into four panels: "The Architecture of the Internet," "Fair Use and the Internet," "Filtering and Content Regulation" and "Privacy, Surveillance and the Internet." The panels are designed to inspire discussion and audience involvement. Speakers will make brief remarks and then respond to questions and comments from the audience and their fellow panelists.
    Space is limited; those interested should register online by Monday, May 20, at http://www.princeton.edu/~lapa/conference/mcleregonline.htm>. For more information, visit http://www.princeton.edu/~lapa/

Entrepreneurs' Network presents conference on managing ventures

Peter Thiel, chairman and chief executive officer of PayPal, will give the keynote address at a conference on "Capturing the Upside: Starting and Managing Ventures in a Rebounding Economy" on Thursday, May 30.
    Sponsored by Princeton's reunion class of 1977, the event is the third annual national conference presented by the Princeton Entrepreneurs' Network. Participants will interact with leading entrepreneurs, executives, venture capitalists, private investors and service providers. It will run from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Whig Hall.
    PayPal, a publicly traded company headquartered in Palo Alto, Calif., was founded in 2000 by Thiel and Max Levchin. Its goal is to enable any business or consumer with an e-mail address to securely, conveniently and cost-effectively send and receive payments online. PayPal is the 2002 Software and Information Industry Association Codie Award winner for "Best e-Commerce Solution" and is recognized by PC Magazine as one of the "Top 100 Web Sites."

Art Museum

"Corpus Christi," a sculpted crucifix from 15th-century northern Italy, is among the works displayed in "Reflections of the Passion: Selected Works from the Princeton University Art Museum" on view throughout the permanent collection galleries at the museum through June 9.
    The piece, which has lost its supporting cross, is part of a selection of works representing the passion and sacrifice of Christ. Conceived in conjunction with another exhibition, "Anthony van Dyck: Ecce Homo and The Mocking of Christ," the display provides the opportunity to reexamine some of the better-known works in the museum's collection.
    The works are discussed in a gallery brochure prepared by Victoria Reed, a curatorial research associate. A brief commentary on each work is included as well as a floorplan to help visitors locate the works in the galleries.
