SPECTRUM OF THOUGHT

SPECTRUM OF THOUGHT
julius genachowski fcc chairman bisnow tech future of mobile dc renaissance ross buntrock arent fox spectrum

There's a supply and demand imbalance. And it's not with CRE. We were delighted to welcome FCC Chairman  Julius Genachowski during this morning's Bisnow Tech event ?The Future of Mobile? at the DC Renaissance hotel. Julius (here with moderator  Ross Buntrock  of law firm Arent Fox) says demand for spectrum is increasing exponentially, sometimes 3,500% a year, with only a flat supply; he proposes an auction of spectrum released by existing owners in return for a share of the profit.

Julius, center, smiled for our camera with former FCC Chairman Dick Wiley (who despite his youth served in that role under Presidents Nixon, Ford,  and  Carter, which as we recall was even before phones had been invented), and former US Senator from North Dakota Byron Dorgan. All the panelists say that communication in this era is virtually the  future of civilization.
