FCC Examination of the Future of Media and Information Needs of Communities in a Digital Age
Posted by Peter M. Shane on January 21, 2010
The FCC just released a public notice, FCC LAUNCHES EXAMINATION OF THE FUTURE OF MEDIA AND INFORMATION NEEDS OF COMMUNITIES IN A DIGITAL AGE. It quotes the conclusion of the Knight Commission on the Information Needs of Communities in a Democracy that “[t]he digital age is creating an information and communications renaissance. But it is not serving all Americans and their local communities equally. It is not yet serving democracy fully.” The notice goes on to state forty-two questions on which the project is conducting research and seeking public input through March 8, 2010. More information and opportunities to comment are available at the project web site.
