Chris Mitchell will be speaking on Monday in St Paul about Net Neutrality. The event is actually the DFL Education Happy Hour and while I’d normally keep clear of anything with such an overtly political slant, the topic was too on track for most readers for me to not mention it. (If your favorite political party has an upcoming event related to broadband policy, I’d be happy to mention that too.)
Here are the details…
Monday, September 13
Kieran’s Irish Pub, Poet’s Corner Room
Corner of 6th St & 1st Ave N
Minneapolis, MN 55401
Chris Mitchell will join us in September to talk about the importance of net neutrality (check out this month’s featured article for a definition) and the power of community-based broadband networks for making it possible. He’s Director of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance’s Telecommunications as Commons Project and author of muninetworks.org.
For what it’s worth, the DFL Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit, and we are (surprise!) nonpartisan. Chris’ subject and his expertise are too good to pass up, so thanks for posting about his talk.
