Luke_Wilbur Posted March 8, 2005 Report Share Posted March 8, 2005 I'm writing to tell you about a conference I am organizing, one that I think you'll find critical to upcoming policy debates. It is called F2C: Freedom to Connect. It will be held on March 30 & 31 at AFI Silver in Silver Spring. All details at http://freedom-to-connect.net The idea is to provide a! "first-mile" view of network progress and telecom policy, the view of the end user, the innovator and the smaller service provider. Along the way, we'll discuss the Grokster and Brand X cases, which the Supreme Court will have just heard. And there will be a Great Debate on the shape of the Next Telecom Act. Featured speakers include Vint Cerf, Dan Gillmor, and Jim Baller. Dianah Neff, the CIO of Philadelphia, and Terry Huval, the head of the Lafayette, Louisiana municipal utility district, will tell the story of their&n! bsp;cities' struggles to build broadband netw orks. Scott Heiferman, founder of Meetup.com will show how Freedom to Connect is crucial to Freedom of Assembly. Reverend AKM Adam, the Blogging Reverend, will explain how connectedness is next to Godliness. David Weinberger, a Philosophy Ph.D. who wrote jokes for Woody Allen, will deliver the closing keynote.
