FCC CHAIRMAN JULIUS GENACHOWSKI
PREPARED REMARKS ON PRESENTATION OF “VISIONARY OF THE
YEAR” AWARD TO BLAIR LEVIN
COMPUTERS FOR YOUTH’S INNOVATIVE LEARNING AWARDS
NEW YORK, NY
JUNE 16, 2011
Thank you. It’s always great to be back in my hometown of New York.
Don't tell my parents I'm here and didn't call them.
It's especially great to be here to honor my friend and mentor, Blair Levin, for his
visionary leadership in helping harness the opportunities of technology for all
Americans, and especially for kids.
Vision and leadership displayed not only in connection with the National
Broadband Plan, but through a career of consistent commitment to public service
and the public good.
For those of you don’t know Blair, his brother summed him up pretty well in a
wedding toast: Blair is a combination of Atticus Finch, Michael Corleone, and any
character ever played by Woody Allen.
We’re fortunate to be joined by some members of the National Broadband Plan
team tonight – Erik Garr, Colin Crowell, Sharren Bates, and Ronnie Cho.
They’re here to honor Blair -- and also because he still owes each of them
hundreds of hours in overtime pay.
I know that our other honorees tonight are no strangers to round-the-clock work to
do good. Congratulations and thank you to Pamela Lopez and Ntiedo Etuk of
Tabula Digita.
Thank you also to tonight’s sponsors.
And a special thanks to Elisabeth Stock and Computers for Youth for hosting
tonight’s event.

The work you do is a model for non-profits: innovative, driven by facts and
metrics, creative, and focused every day on the real needs of children, and on ways

STATEMENT FROM FCC CHAIRMAN JULIUS GENACHOWSKI ON T-MOBILE

WITHDRAWING THEIR CHALLENCE TO FCC’S OPEN INTERNET RULES

“The FCC’s widely supported open Internet framework has contributed to healthy growth in innovation
and investment across the U.S. broadband economy. Since 2010, our strong and balanced rules have been
protecting entrepreneurs and consumers, and have increased certainty and predictability for investors in
Internet services as well as networks. The ongoing litigation – now pursued by a single company – only
serves to reduce that certainty and predictability. I applaud T-Mobile’s decision to withdraw from this
litigation.”
