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.

Invisible terrain of wifi networks

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
