[Discuss] OT -- Susan Crawford / Cambridge Muni Broadband plans

Of possible interest:

To quote from that page:

"Please join us on Tuesday October 18th from 6-8 pm in the 
Sullivan Chamber of Cambridge City Hall to discuss municipal 
fiber and the implications of Comcast's de-facto monopoly on 
high-speed internet in the Cambridge area. Not only does this 
lack of competition disincentivize fair pricing and quality 
service for both residents and businesses, but it also serves to 
widen the Digital Divide, restricting those with lower 
socioeconomic status from equal access to both information and 
economic opportunities.

"The city's appointed Municipal broadband task force just wrapped 
up their first phase by submitting a series recommendations to 
the City Manager which can be found here:

"We are excited to be hosting Professor Susan Crawford, John A. 
Reilly Clinical Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and 
co-director of the Berkman Institute as well as representatives 
from the Cambridge Municipal Broadband Task Force to discuss 
their work on this important issue."
