I missed something

Something important: Kevin Werbach has been named co-head of Obama's FCC transition team. THIS IS IMPORTANT, STAY IN YOUR SEATS. Werbach is probably one of the most interesting thinkers on wireless issues in America today, and a staunch ally of Net Neutrality folks everywhere.

If you've got the time, I would strongly, strongly recommend reading his 2003 paper, "Radio Revolution" for an idea of what a progressive, technologically-literate communications policy would look like.

I'd been waiting for some signs that Obama was taking technology as seriously as he'd indicated in the primaries, and this makes me very, very happy.

Also, Werbach is a WoW player, so he can't possibly be evil.
