Nicholas Johnson is Webmaster and author of most of this Web site’s content — with links to thousands of screens and a wide variety of resources.
There are lots of wonderful Nicholas Johnsons — rocket scientists, economists, baseball players, and even other law professors. This Nicholas Johnson is best known as a former Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission and Iowa City School Board member, who recently retired (at 80, while retaining his office) from teaching cyberlaw at the University of Iowa College of Law. For more about him than even his mother would ever have wanted to know, check out his bio, this Web site, and his blog, http://FromDC2Iowa.blogspot.com.
Why “From DC to Iowa”? Because much of the content relates both to Washington, D.C., and “outside the beltway” — the heartland, specifically Iowa. And because after going from Iowa to Washington via Texas and California he subsequently returned, “FromDC2Iowa,” to his family home in Iowa City.
