The Federal Communications Commission's throwing a four-hour shindig at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh today -- and you're invited, virtually, via the FCC's audio-video homepage. The get-down starts at 3 p.m. Dallas time, and it should be intriguing: The subject matter's "Broadband and the Digital Future," and joining the panel of experts -- which is slated to include bigwigs and hotshots from the likes of Google and Intel and the American Cable Association -- is none other than the owner of Your Dallas Mavericks, who grew up around Pittsburgh and seldom has anything to say on the subject at hand this afternoon. --Robert Wilonsky
