Next January, at CES 2010, gadget nerds and tech bloggers alike will finally have a chance to rub elbows with some of this country's political movers and shakers. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski will be speaking at the conference. He'll give a candid policy discussion at noon, Friday, Jan. 8. There will be another FCC discussion called, "Inside the FCC's Communications Agenda," hosted by FCC Commissioners Meredith Baker, Mignon Clyburn and Robert McDowell. The commissioners will be discussing the national broadband plan, net neutrality arguments, and demands for more spectrum. The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) has partnered with the CEA this year to create the "Technology and Emerging Countries" (TEC) program. The TEC team will be hosting panel discussions on "Technology for Smart Energy", "Healthcare Technology for Emerging Markets" and "Study Time: How Advances in Technology Improve Education Opprotunities". Panelists will include senior government officials from around the world and several major corporate leaders. Green issues weigh heavily on all of our mind's these days. There will be several environmental panels at CES 2010, as well as the "Technology and the Environment" Knowledge Track. California State Senator Alex Padilla will be on hand for the "Dollars and Watts: Energy Use Information for Electronics" panel as well as the "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About State E-Waste Laws but Were Afraid to Ask,".
