Yesterday the Obama campaigned named two big advocates of net neutrality to his transition team. The best part is that they are heading up the review of the FCC:
Susan Crawford, a professor at the University of Michigan Law School, and Kevin Werbach, a former FCC staffer, organizer of the annual tech conference Supernova, and a Wharton professor, will lead the Obama-Biden transition team’s review of the FCC.
Both are highly-regarded outside-the-Beltway experts in telecom policy, and they’ve both been pretty harsh critics of the Bush administration’s telecom policies in the past year.
Perhaps we are looking at a new dawn in the world of online privacy and fairness under President Obama.
