FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr and Cooley partner and former FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell will host a virtual town hall to discuss the FCC’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as broadband, wireless infrastructure, broadcast, telehealth, the future of 5G, politics and more.
There is more information shared on social media than any other time in history, and the information is not always factual.

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web. Almost two decades later, he launched Inrupt, a startup set out to reshape the internet by putting personal data back in the hands of individuals. Join our talk with Berners-Lee and his Inrupt co-founder John Bruce about whether or not the internet’s dependence on advertising is sustainable. They’ll also cover how, as we all work and learn from home, internet connectivity has now more than ever become an equality issue.
