FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell will be interviewed by veteran tech reporter Declan McCullagh of CNET in a “fireside chat” on tech policy at TechFreedom‘s half-day symposium to introduce its first publication: The Next Digital Decade: Essays on the Future of the Internet.
TechFreedom is a new non-profit, non-partisan think tank. Our mission is to promote the progress of technology that improves the human condition and expands individual capacity to choose. We advance the freedoms that make experimentation, entrepreneurship and investment possible, and thus unleash the ultimate resource: human ingenuity. On a wide variety of issues, TechFreedom will outline a path forward for policymakers towards a bright future where technology enhances freedom, and freedom enhances technology.
The Next Digital Decade brings together 26 thought leaders on Internet law, philosophy, policy and economics to consider the future of the Internet, from a wide variety of perspectives. This book is essential reading for anyone gazing toward the digital future. The symposium features authors from a selection of the ten organizing questions asked in the book.
