FCC Taps Zittrain For Scholar Post

May 31, 2011

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski announced Tuesday that he has appointed Harvard law and computer science professor Jonathan Zittrain to serve as the agency's distinguished scholar.

Zittrain is considered an expert on many Internet-related issues and helped co-found Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society. In a statement, Genachowski said Zittrain would work on issues related to 21st century communications networks from the FCC's Office of Strategic Planning & Policy Analysis.

Genachowski described Zittrain as "one of the world's leading strategic thinkers on communications policy in the 21st century."

In an e-mail response, Zittrain said he will be working part time at the FCC and does not plan to take a leave from Harvard.

Zittrain is only the second person to hold the post as distinguished scholar at the FCC. He will succeed Duke University law professor Stuart Benjamin.
