Cable Access

Hawai'i was the site for the annual conference of the Alliance for Community Media. Attendees who work in public access from the United States and several other countries spent three days discussing common concerns, learning about the latest federal legislation relative to access, sharing ideas, and interacting with both those new to access and "old-timers."

Keynote speaker for the Saturday luncheon was State Senator Carol Fukunaga who was a prime mover in arranging Hawai'i's legislative coverage of committee and floor debates on the public views channel. Senator Fukunaga sits on several national telecommunication committees.

Addressing the theme "Protect the Voice, and Protect the Vision," Fukunaga tied the mission of access to the changes occurring in telecommunication. She suggested that Hawai'i's super highway can help educate, make communications media more effective, provide people control over their own messages, and increase public discourse.
