• Don Blake, National Education Association.

* Marland Buckner, Senior Federal Affairs Manager, Microsoft Corporation

The Federation of American Scientists (fas.org) was formed in 1945 by atomic scientists from the Manhattan Project. Endorsed by 68 Nobel Laureates in biology, chemistry, economics, medicine and physics as sponsors, the Federation has addressed a broad spectrum of national security issues in carrying out its mission to promote humanitarian uses of science and technology. Today, the FAS Information Technologies Project works on strategies to harness the potential of emerging information technologies to improve how we teach and learn.

The Entertainment Software Association (theesa.com) is the U.S. association dedicated to serving the business and public affairs needs of the companies publishing interactive games for video game consoles, handheld devices, personal computers, and the Internet. ESA members collectively account for more than 90 percent of the $7 billion in entertainment software sales in the U.S. in 2005, and billions more in export sales of entertainment software.
