We’ll be discussing the Fly-In further in another post, however here are highlight photos and videos from the events:
Tuesday, November 17th we presented Congressman Sensenbrenner and Representative Conyers with the i2Coalition’s Champion of Internet Innovation award for their tireless fights against legislation that would hinder the internet as our society’s platform for innovation. We also heard a riveting speech from Internet Hall of Famer and Executive Chairwoman of the Mozilla Foundation, Mitchell Baker on the future of internet at the intersection of democracy!
