President-elect Barack Obama today named two academics to head his transition team looking at issues and personnel for the Federal Communications Commission.
Susan Crawford, a University of Michigan law professor of communications law, and Ken Werbach, a Wharton School assistant professor and a former counsel for new technology policy at the FCC during the Clinton administration, will lead the team.
Mr. Wheeler, who also headed the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association, is currently managing director of Core Capital Partners, a venture capital firm. He is taking a leave of absence to work with the new administration.
Excellent choices and it bodes well for Net Neutrality.
