Apologies for the slightly delayed notice on this. Hands full setting up 4
rooms! Highlight this morning was Geoffrey Starks' maiden speech as an FCC
Commissioner, after which he was duly grilled by Gigi Sohn. Also speaking
were Avi Gillis from the UK DCMS, and Hopeton S. Dunn from Jamaica. Be sure
to tune in Friday morning for Larry Irving and Vint Cerf.

And big thanks to Vint & Google for sponsoring the live captioning.

for Progress on the Digital Divide <http://www.ppdd.org/> *(PPDD) is the
only academic professional organization in the world focused solely on the
digital divide and on connecting research to policymaking and practice to
strategize actions and catalyze solutions to this pressing societal
concern. The academic research, policymaker, and practitioner community
represented by PPDD stands ready to advance the agenda on broadband and the
digital divide, to address the many challenges and opportunities presented
by the digital world, and to further evidence-based policymaking and
practice so that all citizens can participate fully in the digital,
networked age.

On *May 21-23 2019* the interdisciplinary *Partnership for Progress on the
Digital Divide 2019 International Conference
<http://www.ppdd.org/conferences/ppdd2019/>* brings together researchers,
policymakers, and practitioners for an extended, in-depth dialogue about
key issues that inform information and communication technologies and the
digital divide around the world. The Conference works to identify new areas
of necessary, productive focus, foster greater understanding, advance
research, and enlighten policy and practice going forward.

PPDD 2019 is particularly significant as it marks the 25th anniversary of
the recognition of the digital divide through social scientific research.
And, within PPDD 2019, we plan to have the largest worldwide gathering of
experts on technology, disability, and the digital divide ever.

The plenary sessions and breakouts will be webcast live on the *Internet
Society Livestream Channel <https://livestream.com/internetsociety/>*.
Other breakouts will be recorded and streamed later.
