Reaching the public today not only means reaching out of the box, but reaching into next-gen networks. This workshop is an interactive session to showcase various models employed to provide local community programming to the public - whether in the form of a PEG channel, social media, including a discussion of usage policy. Experts will first showcase examples of their media magic, and then the session will open up to the audience for how-to, problem-solving discussions with these experts. Conference attendees are encouraged to bring samples of their own 'programming' for display during the session.

Year to date, it has made some landmark policy decisions, including shaping a long term road map through its National Broadband Plan or through its net neutrality rulemaking. This closing session will shed light on how the Commission's National Broadband Plan and network neutrality decisions are impacting the local deployment of broadband and the remediation of our country's digital divide, including attempts by special interests to stifle those plans. Commissioner Copp’s keynote address will be followed by an in-depth panel discussion of FCC developments in Universal Service Fund reform, the National Broadband Plan, P-E-G issues and open internet requirements, among other relevant topics. KEYNOTE: Commissioner Michael J. Copps – Federal Communications Commission
