Washington, D.C. (November 6, 2013) -  American Enterprise Institute (AEI) president Arthur Brooks announced today that Richard Bennett, a widely respected Internet policy scholar and an expert on network engineering and Internet standards, is joining AEI’s Center for Internet, Communications, and Technology Policy (CICT) as a visiting fellow.  His work at AEI will focus on broadband, the Internet, and communications technologies.
 
A co-inventor of Wi-Fi and modern Ethernet architecture, Mr. Bennett is a leader in the broadband policy debate.  His works have been widely published, and he has testified on multiple occasions before Congress, the Federal Communications Commission, and in policy fora around the world.
 
"Scholarship and entrepreneurship are two of AEI's highest values, and Richard exemplifies the best of both,” Mr. Brooks said.  “I am delighted he has chosen to join the Center for Internet, Communications and Technology Policy."

"Richard is an accomplished engineer and inventor who knows how the Internet works from the inside out,” CICT director Jeffrey Eisenach said.  “We are delighted to add his voice and his perspective to CICT and TechPolicyDaily.com."

“I am grateful and excited to have the opportunity to work with one of America’s pre-eminent think tanks,” Bennett said.  “AEI is making a really important contribution to the debate.”
