A View From the Chairman’s Chair

At a recent hearing of the House Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet, Chairman Ed Markey (D-MA) recorded a video and posted it on YouTube. Infused with a bit of humor, this video allows the viewer to get a view from the Chairman’s seat at a hearing. It can be found at:

The focus of the hearing at which this video was recorded is the digital future, with a emphasis on the future of video. As a strain on Internet bandwidth, video and new technologies for watching video on the Internet, this is an interesting topic for libraries.

Prepared statements of the hearing can be found at the Subcommittee’s website.
