Last weekend, Eric was in Traverse City, Michigan speaking to the annual conference of the National Governors Association. As reported by the Traverse City Record-Eagle, Eric told the governors that “education must evolve to teach students how to research and access information instead of memorizing facts,” and lamented that the tremendous teaching resources on the Internet are not being fully used to teach students. Check out the full video of Eric’s NGA talk:
On Monday, Eric joined YouTube’s Chad Hurley and Steve Chen in Charleston, South Carolina for the first CNN/YouTube presidential debate (which, by the way, was the second most-watched presidential debate so far…in no small part to the revolutionary voter-generated format). Today, Eric showed up on Capitol Hill to meet with a number of Senators and House members, discussing health care, patent reform, immigration, privacy and consumer issues. And next month, Eric will be among the tech policy wonks gathering at the Progress and Freedom Foundation’s annual Aspen Summit, where we expect our recent advocacy for spectrum reform will be a big topic of discussion.
