Google D.C. Talk next Thursday: Tech Agenda 2009

Posted by Dan Martin, Global Communications and Public Affairs

Earlier this week we announced that Google CEO Eric Schmidt will be in Washington next Tuesday to deliver a speech on the intersection between technology and the economy.

Two days after Eric's speech, Google's Washington office will be hosting the first in a three-part series of "Google D.C. Talks" on the technology policy agenda for the incoming Congress and Administration.

The event will examine the crucial role of technology in driving economic growth, with a special focus on the infrastructure needed to foster innovation: an open Internet, broadband access, and a smart energy grid.

Panelists include Gigi Sohn (President, Public Knowledge), Jennifer Canty (CEO, Dyscern), Ben Scott (Policy Director, Free Press), Stephen Ezell (Senior Analyst, ITIF), Harry Wingo (Policy Counsel, Google), and Michael Oldak (Senior Director, Edison Electric Institute).
