Professor Eli Noam addresses the overwhelming amount of information that is barraging people today. He calls this "the problem of the last twenty inches"--the twenty inches being the distance from the display terminal to the human brain. Noam argues for common carriage "rights of way" to prevent the bottlenecks that can occur when information crosses subnetworks that set their own rules. Telecommunications policy focus is on issues of "interconnection, of integration of the various network parts." Chair: Marc Rotenberg.
