FCC at Stanford: No BitTorrent?

The FCC just released the lineup of speakers for tomorrow’s open meeting at Stanford, and while the list includes a lot of interesting folks who probably have lots to say about network management, I’m a little puzzled as to why BitTorrent inventor Bram Cohen isn’t on the list.

Maybe he wasn’t asked, maybe he said no — no idea right now, but it seems like a huge missed opportunity since BT is sort-of responsible for the whole Comcast-blocking mess in the first place. (But then the two firms are BFF now, right? Right.)

Anyway, should be good theater. Hope we get in!

UPDATE: Looks like Comcast is skipping the party, too. Maybe this is why — they didn’t want to have to face an angry Dave! :-)
