I’m thrilled to be able to write that my friends Susan Crawford and Kevin Werbach have been named to review the FCC for the Obama transition team. I’ve been a fan of Susan’s work on One Web Day and have participated since she started it. (photo credit: http://flickr.com/photos/jrnoded/) I was asked to be a One Web Day Ambassador this year.
I’ve also had the privilege of working for Kevin on his annual Supernova conference for the last 2 years.
I am extremely pleased that these two individuals, who I know have very clear ideas on how technology and communications can be used to help all Americans learn and gain access will be in key roles reviewing current policy. I can only hope they also get key roles in the administration. Congratulations, both Kevin and Susan.
