The Digital Society Project is an ongoing research initiative led by McGannon Center Affiliated Scholar Dr. Mark Cooper. The principle of ubiquitous access to an open communications network has been at the center of U.S. communications policy throughout its history. Reflecting this principle, preserving the basic institutional and and economic relations that have contributed to the immense success of the Internet are the primary objectives of the Digital Society Project. This project seeks to extend Dr. Cooper’s history of analysis and involvement to preserve these core values as the Public Switched Telephone Network transforms into the public digital communications network. Research produced through the Digital Society Project thus far:
