FCC holding net neutrality workshop this Wednesday in Seattle

A quick heads up for readers who care about net neutrality: This Wednesday morning, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is holding a workshop on preserving the open Internet at the Jackson Federal Building in downtown Seattle.

According to the FCC, the workshop will consider... the Internet’s openness can best be preserved, including by examining historical and ongoing efforts to protect Internet openness in the United States and other countries, and by discussing the key technological, economic, and legal considerations relevant to the need for and substance of the Commission’s proposed open Internet policies.
The FCC itself - that's the five-member Commission, comprised of three Democrats and two Republicans - is not actually coming to town, as it did a few years ago, but the workshop will influence its decision-making.

Commission staff are in town and will be facilitating the workshop.

Details for the event are as follows:

FCC Workshop on Preserving an Open Internet
Jackson Federal Building
915 2nd Avenue, Seattle, WA
Wednesday, April 28th, 2010, from 9:30 AM to noon
Sponsored by the FCC
