The medium is the message - FCC joins the blogosphere

The FCC is taking a progressive step
and embracing a few 21st century mediums of the masses – the
blogosphere and Twitter.  As the FCC works on crafting a National Broadband Plan, the agency has decided to document its efforts for the public.
The blog, "Blogband" will detail the agency’s efforts to design
a broadband strategy, as well as offer citizens a way to submit feedback,
comments and concerns regarding the developments.  The plan is due to Congress
in February. 

In the inaugural post, Chairman
Julius Genachowski wrote:

the Internet is changing and
expanding the way Americans communicate, providing them with unparalleled access
to information.  Our goal is to create a National Broadband Plan that charts a
path toward bringing the benefits of robust broadband to all Americans. So visit
Blogband often to keep up with the latest news and – more importantly – get
involved.

At Mobile Future, we applaud
Chairman Genachowski and the FCC’s efforts to heed Obama’s call for government
to be more open and transparent, and we look forward to
following along on the journey. You can follow the FCC on its blog and on Twitter.
