Broadband Breakfast

An early advocate of better broadband, better lives, he founded Broadband Census as a way to crowdsource broadband data left unpublished by the Federal Communications Commission. Then, Broadband Breakfast helped drive debate around broadband investments under the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Clark was appointed executive director of the Partnership for a Connected Illinois under Gov. Pat Quinn. There, he led a combined federal and state effort of fiber-optic and wireless infrastructure investments, including broadband mapping, economic development and digital literacy training. He is also the President of the Rural Telecommunications Congress, a co-host of the annual Broadband Communities Summit.
