Welcome back, everyone! 

As you may or may not remember, we turned the big 1-0 this year and we’re celebrating by looking back at all of the exciting moments that happened in the Glen Echo Group extended universe over the last ten years. As always, please follow along on social media (#10yearsGlenEcho) and at our 10-year anniversary site to see what we’ve been up to over the last decade.

Today, we’re hopping in the time machine and going back to 2013:

In 2013, with patent trolls, immigration reform and a legal challenge to the FCC’s 2010 Open Internet Order driving the tech policy conversation, the Glen Echo Group secured a big new client and grew in size, by adding FCC alum and telecom vet, Ellen Satterwhite. 

2013 was also the year that Wi-Fi got a federal advocate: the WifiForward Coalition.

An ad hoc coalition of unlicensed and shared spectrum users working in partnership with Comcast, Charter, NCTA, Google and public interest and free-market stalwarts like Public Knowledge, New America’s OTI, the American Library Association and the R Street Institute, WifiForward made Wi-Fi cool again, no longer the red-headed stepchild of spectrum. 

Maura, a red-headed stepchild herself, has her lower back rebuilt in titanium and Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o gets Catfished though it will be a few years before that’s a verb.

In 2013, the Glen Echo Group continued to grow! We added telecom and tech policy vet Ellen Satterwhite to the fold, bringing with her years of experience across the tech landscape, including at the FCC. Ellen is still with the Glen Echo Group today, continuing to wow us with her professional expertise,elite socializing skills and vast knowledge of The Five Love Languages
In May 2013, Mignon Clyburn became acting Chair of the FCC and, in the process, made history as the first ever female to lead the Commission.  
Party on! Glen Echo Group’s Maura Corbett and friends at Public Knowledge’s IP3 Awards at the historic Ronald Reagan Building in October 2013.
Name a better combo than tech policy and jazz? You can’t! Here’s our Glen Echo Group crew plus some friends at a Bob Schwartz Quartet show. For the uninitiated, Bob is a copyright lawyer by day and a jazz flutist by night.
