The Internet Association
The Internet Association recently stopped by Sioux Falls, South Dakota with Sen. John Thune (R-SD) and FCC Commissioners Ajit Pai and Mike O'Rielly to meet local business owners who rely on the Internet for their businesses to operate and thrive.
During their visits along South Phillips Avenue in downtown Sioux Falls, three businesses opened their doors to explain how the Internet enables their businesses to operate in Sioux Falls and reach customers across the country. The crawl included stops at Blend Interactive, Chelsea's Boutique, and CH Patisserie.
This is fantastic. Thanks for sharing our story!
While the comment "Location doesn't matter" is correct for 'doing business' it matters A LOT for E911 services. In fact it's the most important.

Michael Beckerman, CEO of the Internet Association, which represents 36 global internet companies, was in Dublin this week to attend the 54th ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) meeting.
During his time in Ireland he held an event at Yahoo’s headquarters in Dublin where the Internet Association honoured Irishman Dennis Jennings for critical decisions he made in the 1980s that contributed to the emergence of the internet that we know today.
Specifically, Jennings made three key choices about the network’s architecture, each of which fostered its growth and global reach:
1. It would be a general-purpose research network, not limited to connection of supercomputers;
2. It would act as the backbone for the connection of regional networks at each supercomputing site;
3. It would use the ARPANET's TCP/IP protocols.
