Long time pal Carl Ford has let me know that he'll be moderating a call on a very hot topic on Calliflower--Net Neutrality: Can Open be Governed this Tuesday, October 6 at 1230 EST.
Participants include: Todd Daubert of Kelley Drye, Hank Hultquist of AT&T and Rick Whitt of Google.
Given all the noise and news around the Google vs. Apple and Google vs. AT&T, plus the Skype efforts on the Carterphone act, one really has to wonder if Open is the new Closed just like Blue is the new Black these days and also if any fireworks will erupt.
Carl reminds use that "FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has expanded from four to six the principles of freedom associated with Net Neutrality. Now however these principles are now going to be codified into regulatory rules. So the question has to be asked can the concept of “open” be governed."
Join Carl and his guests as they look at how these principles will be incorporated into policy. What companies, services and devices will be subject to these rules and discuss if the jurisdiction of the FCC has to be modified to enable these principles.
