Mr. Isenberg will present ”Your Neutrality Reality” addressing the current state and fate of network neutrality as the economics of every Internet business are on track to be turned completely upside down. Without network neutrality, service providers could determine what content is available to Internet subscribers compromising the basis upon which the Internet was founded. Mr. Isenberg discusses the salient points and what’s ahead for the industry and the entire Internet economy as it faces the new reality of neutrality.
Mr. Isenberg spent 12 years at AT and T Bell Labs until his 1997 essay, ”The Rise of the Stupid Network,” was received with acclaim everywhere in the global telecommunications community with one exception – at AT and T itself. So Mr. Isenberg left AT and T in 1998 to found isen.com LLC (an independent telecom analysis firm based in Cos Cob, CT) and to publish The SMART Letter, an open-minded commentary on the communications revolution and its enemies. He is also the co-producer and chair of the Freedom to Connect conference.
