Internet Governance

Internet Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill

by Christian Dawson  • 

Wednesday, February 27th I am heading to Washington D.C. to help teach Congress how the Internet works!

The organization I helped build last year, the i2Coalition, is holding an event and meeting with Congresspeople on the Hill. Members of AiNET, Arvixe, Black Lotus, Cheval Capital, Firehost, FortressITX,, Green Olive Tree, Handy Networks, Hedgehog Hosting, Jumpline, LeaseWeb USA, MediaTemple, OpenXChange, ScienceLogic, ServInt, Studio 1337, and WiredTree are all attending and participating. Details of the event are here.

On Tuesday night at 8PM at Ping Pong Dim Sum we will be holding a kick-off party, and I’d like to invite you – our ServInt Source readers! I named the event “Celebrate the Innovation Economy” and it is hosted in conjunction with a group that advocates for startups called Engine Advocacy, and is sponsored by CEA. Here are details.

Click on the links above if you’d like to attend either event.

Hope to see you there!
