Press Release

WASHINGTON, May 6, 2009 – Unprecedented demand to attend the Broadband Breakfast Club has caused BroadbandCensus.com to relocate the event, beginning at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, May 12, to Clyde’s of Gallery Place. Rep. Rick Boucher, Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Communications Subcommittee, will speak at the event.

Boucher, who leads Congressional efforts to define and supervise the nation’s broadband policy – and its communication strategy for rural America – will lead off the discussion at the Broadband Breakfast Club with a speech at the Old Ebbitt Grill. The topic of the May 12 meeting is “How Should ‘Unserved’ and ‘Underserved’ Areas Best Be Defined?”

Registration for the breakfast event is available here. Breakfast is available beginning at 8 a.m.; the program will begin shortly after 8:30 a.m. Clyde’s of Gallery Place is located at 707 7th Street NW, Washington, DC. The event will take place in the Piedmont Room upstairs.

Other speakers at the May Broadband Breakfast Club, the second in a series on “Spending the Broadband Stimulus,” will consider one of the leading definition questions that remains to be defined by the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, the Federal Communications Commission, and the Agriculture Department’s Rural Utilities Service: who is served by broadband, and who isn’t.

Other confirmed speakers include:

  • Randolph J. May, President, Free State Foundation
  • Jean Plymale, Virginia Tech eCorridors Program
  • James Bradford Ramsey, General Counsel, National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners
  • S. Derek Turner, Research Director, Free Press

DC versus SF: A Clash of Vision for Tech Policy Event on Monday, October 28, at 3 p.m. ET

Published

on

From our friends at TechFreedom:

How do DC and SF think about the future? Are their visions of how to promote, and adapt to, technological change compatible? Or are America’s policymakers fundamentally in conflict with its innovators? Can technology ultimately trump politics?

In the near-term, are traditional left/right divides breaking down? What are the real fault lines in technology policy? Where might a divided Congress reach consensus on tech policy issues like privacy, immigration, copyright, censorship, Internet freedom and biotech?

For answers and more questions, join moderator Declan McCullagh (Chief Political Correspondent for CNET), and a panel of technology policy experts: Berin Szoka (President, TechFreedom), Larry Downes (author, Laws of Disruption), and Mike McGeary (Co-Founder and Chief Political Strategist, Engine Advocacy). This event is co-sponsored by TechFreedom, Reason Foundation, and the Charles Koch Institute.

RSVP here. A live stream will be available here, and you can follow the conversation on Twitter with #DCvSF.

When:
Monday, October 28, 2013
12:00pm – 1:30 PT
The live stream will be available on this page.

Where:
Hyatt Regency
5 Embarcadero Center
San Francisco, CA 94111
