Meeting FCC Chairman Ajit Pai

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai stopped by our offices this past week. It was a terrific opportunity to learn about new policies and regulations, and to provide updates on some of our key corporate initiatives (in telecom and beyond).

A few things that still stick with me:

  • The man himself was incredibly nice, genuine, curious, welcoming.
  • Planning for a government official visit was a lot of fun (and a wee bit stressful).
  • The amount of hatred he endures is incredible; His Twitter feed (and ours, by association) was riddled with ludicrous and ugly comments.
  • His staff are incredibly gracious and supportive.

Politics aside (is that even possible anymore?), it was a terrific opportunity to meet Chairman Pai and his team.
