White House Initiative to Spur Student Innovations in Broadband

Tom Kalil and Aneesh Chopra of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy have proposed a new initiative to spur student innovation to develop "killer apps" for broadband networks.  The initiative would involve companies, universities, and students and would take advantage of high-capacity networks such as Internet2 and National LambdaRail. Kalil and Chopra are seeking feedback for their ideas.
