Next Digital Decade event interviews FCC Commissioner on net neutrality

The “Next Digital Decade and Tech Freedom Launch Event” in Washington DC Hyatt Regency Hotel Jan. 25 is available online, here.  The first interview (28 minutes) is a “Fireside Chat” with FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell, interviewed by Declan McCullagh of CNET.

McDowell was asked why the FCC rules from December 2010 aren’t yet in the Federal Register. McDowell actually came out against much federal regulation, but was not specific as to the criticisms of the recent rules or of FCC’s legal authority.  Andrew Keen from the audience played some devil’s advocate.

The link is here, and the relevant video (not embeddable) is the first one.
