Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

How should spectrum be managed?

A veritable who’s-who of the legal world — or at least where legal meets the internet! — was on hand last saturday (3/8) for the Legal Futures Conference at Stanford University’s Center for Internet and Society. Actually, Saturday’s sessions were free and open to the public, while Friday’s sessions were invitation-only. FCC chair Kevin Martin spoke on Friday about networks and their management. Why we should care about the spectrum debate
