Civic Participation and Broadband

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission was required by Congress in the stimulus package to develop a National Broadband Plan. How broadband can advance "civic participation" is the second item in the list passed by Congress and signed by the President. Very exciting. This is the first time the U.S. government has committed to advancing "civic participation" without getting stuck on one-way government service delivery.

Let's use this wiki page to gather links related to civic participation and broadband. For discussion, consider using the US Democracy Online Exchange.

From H.R. 1: Final Stimulus Version it specifically mentions:

  • D) a plan for use of broadband infrastructure and services in advancing consumer welfare, civic participation, public safety and homeland security, ...


Also, on the US Democracy Online Exchange, the announcement of this wiki generated a reply from Harvard's Berkman Center that they are helping the FCC with a review of literature and studies. Berkman is now an additional audience for this wiki.

The recommended Twitter hashtag for exchange related to the National Broadband plan as a whole is #bbplan.
