At Fandor, we are passionate about keeping the Internet open. Tim Pozar, Director of Streaming at Fandor, recently spoke alongside Rusty Hodge of SomaFM and Brewster Kahle of Internet Archive at the the SF MusicTech Summit, on a panel regarding Net Neutrality. The panel was moderated by Julie Samuels of Engine. They discussed the nitty-gritty logistics of the changing Internet and shared strategies to deal with increased infrastructure needs and advocate for equal access to bandwidth. We thoroughly recommend giving it a listen.
