I thought the following webinar might be of interest to folks. If I’m not on the road, I will try to attend and take notes – although I think I will be on the road.
BroadbandUS.TV – US Ignite – What’s the Opportunity for Communities, Providers, Developers, and Other Stakeholders?
Wed, July 25, 2012, at 1-3 pm Eastern
With the June launch of its US Ignite initiative, the White House seeks to stimulate the public and private sectors to work together to create a new wave of services and applications that drive demand for, and take advantage of, globally competitive high-capacity broadband networks running much faster than today’s Internet. A new public-private partnership with almost 100 partners to date, US Ignite will build on the National Science Foundation’s GENI network to interconnect communities with advanced fiber networks to facilitate sharing of knowledge, experiences, and applications across multiple disciplines. The program is poised to match developers of advanced medical, public safety, energy, and other bandwidth-rich applications in these communities with experts who can help accelerate the development and commercialization of these applications.
Join BroadbandUS.TV co-hosts Jim Baller and Marty Stern and their guests on July 25, 2012 at 1pm ET, for an in-depth review of the US Ignite initiative and the opportunities it presents for communities, providers, developers, and other stakeholders
