Like electricity a century ago, broadband is a foundation for economic growth, job creation, global competitiveness, and a better way of life. It is enabling entire new industries and unlocking vast new possibilities for existing ones. It is changing how we educate children, deliver health care, manage energy, ensure public safety, engage government, and access, organize, and disseminate knowledge. But broadband in America is not all it needs to be. The Institute for Information Law & Policy invites you to attend a discussion with Claude Aiken ’08, on his role at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Mr. Aiken is Legal Counsel to the Senior Advisor to the Chairman on Broadband at the FCC, where he advises the Chairman’s office on issues relating to the National Broadband Plan. Prior to this, he was an Honors Program attorney in the Wireline Competition Bureau where he focused on broadband competition and universal service issues. He also serves as a board member and general counsel for 100cameras, Inc., a non-profit that uses photography to help underprivileged youth.
