This Week I Get My Wonk On, Next Week I Am A Free Man.

Passover comes late this year. It doesn’t start until Saturday night, April 19. Getting ready for Passover is a phenomenal pain in the rear end, because it involves all sort of complicated cleaning things. So this time of year is really busy for us true believer types.

Which is why the Good Lord has made it such a plentiful season for critical hearings. This week on Tuesday morning, I will testify before the House Telecom Subcommittee at the incredibly crowded second panel on the 700 MHz Auction aftermath. Then it’s out to California to catch the FCC Hearing on Network Management (official witness list still not posted, but my name turned up in Comm Daily on the short list).

Mind you, I am extremely happy to have the opportunity to testify before the House and all that. Indeed, given how much I’ve lived these things (especially the spectrum stuff), I’d be really miffed if I didn’t get a chance to speak my piece. I just wish it could be a little, y’know, less hectic.

At least I will be able to say with conviction at my Passover celebration “Now I am a free man.”

Stay tuned . . .

  1. I’m pretty sure the Good Lord doesn’t have anything to do with FCC hearings, as the franchise is handled by that other authority. Still in all, I’d be glad to buy you a drink in Palo Alto.

  2. See you there!

  3. You policy wonk rock star, you.

  4. Alas, if the FCC regulates ISPs, I and other ISPs will no longer be free men. In fact, we not even have a livelihood (even though the livelihood we have does, at times, is as arduous as making bricks). Also note that, since mitigating P2P does not inhibit free speech, it makes no sense to ban this sensible and in fact salutary practice. Some things to consider as you slouch at the table as is customary during Passover singing ancient Babylonian cumulative songs about goats…. πŸ˜‰
