Genachowski To Be Nominated as Head of FCC

Julius Genachowski will be nominated to be FCC Chairman.  His nomination is praised by public advocacy groups.  Industry associations seem a bit muted on the development.  Genachowski is credited with the Obama campaign's deft use of the Internet to get out the campaign message and raise oodles of cash.  Some of Genachowski's experience comes from his time as a venture capitalist and corporate work.  He sounds like someone who knows both the corporate and user sides of the Internet.  That should make the FCC a very interesting place as it deals with broadband competition, DTV transition, and creating a first responder network out of existing spectrum. 

More in BNET, RCRWireless, and the Chicago Tribune.  [MG]
