Navigating the Network of Networks: The Internet Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Less than 20 years ago, there were only a few million Internet users, and most of them logged on using a dial-up connection. Today, we have instantaneous, high-speed Internet connections that let us stream a movie, join a worldwide teleconference, or get a medical diagnosis with a click of the mouse or a swipe of the screen. How did things come so far so fast? Why is the broadband Internet in America such a huge success? And what's next?
Join BFA at our next Capitol Hill Briefing where we will convene some of today's foremost technology experts and leading policymakers to talk about where we've been and where we're going, and what Washington can do (and shouldn't do) to ensure that the Internet of tomorrow is the best it can be.
