FCC boss struggles between roles of regulator, innovator
Call him what you want (many have garbled his name), but don't call Julius Genachowski an Internet regulator.
That label, in a political environment where regulation of big business often holds particular scorn, is one that the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission has been fighting to avoid.
But for the federal government's top cop for broadband Internet services, that title tends to stick.
Genachowski (pronounced jen-a-cow-ski) set two key policy goals when he took the job: to bring super-fast Internet connections to every home in America and to make sure those lines were open for any Web site and new software start-up to have a shot at making it in the digital economy.
