Webex palantir?

The FCC is doing a workshop on the National Broadband Plan, and the future of the E-Rate is on the agenda. So I know where I'll be this Thursday (August 20th) at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern time).

Here's part of the info I got from NCTET:
The event will be broadcast live via WebEx, Second Life, and web-based video feed, and interested participants will be able to submit questions to the panelists via WebEx, Second Life, and Twitter. The Education team is also soliciting ideas for the Plan via Ideascale at Information about the Workshop (including video and Twitter feed info) can be found at (WebEx video feed is confirmed, FCC is working on a Quicktime feed as well, which will be posted closer to the event date).

Participants interested in attending in person can register online at, and participants interested in attending via WebEx can register online at

Here's the agenda:
  1. Broadband and educational outcomes
  2. Opportunities and benefits of broadband in education
  3. Future use of broadband in education
  4. The future of the e-rate
  5. Most promising broadband related applications and devices for education
  6. Digital literacy
