U. S. Broadband Policy 

There is a very interesting article regarding the U.S. falling behind in the deployment of broadband and applications that utilize it as well as broadband policy in the July issue of Foreign Affairs magazine.

According to Gary Champman (LBJ School of Public Affairs at UT Austin), the irony of the article is that one of the author's recommendations is that the White House should strengthen PITAC, the President's Information Technology Advisory Committee (a group of private-sector IT leaders and academics) and involve them as key leaders in advancing broadband deployment. This week, the White House announced it is dissolving PITAC. (See http://www.fcw.com/article89355-06-23-05-Web)
