On April 14, 2011 in Mountain View at the Computer History Museum, The Commonwealth Club hosted a conversation between Julius Genachowski, Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and Adam Lashinsky of Fortune Magazine. They discussed the growth of mobile devices, new net neutrality regulations and dwindling airwave spectrum availability.

Genachowski says America can overcome the innovator’s dilemma with a balanced approach to new technology. Like an older larger corporation, it is harder to innovate against existing entrenched interests and compete effectively in a global market. In emerging countries, few people had land line phones so there was less of a fight introducing cell phones. The global demand for spectrum will only increase with tablets using a hundred times more bandwidth than an old cell phone. The spectrum will have to shared like water or any other limited resource. He thinks there should be considerations for licensed and unlicensed spectrum to encourage more innovation around the bottlenecks we have today.
