The following statement is attributed to Gigi B. Sohn, president and co-founder of Public Knowledge:
“I would like to wish my fellow Boston University alum Joe Waz a peaceful retirement from Comcast, but that won’t be easy. Although he is leaving the company, Joe will continue to be active in the field as the first chairman of the Broadband Internet Technology Advisory Group and as a senior fellow at the Silicon Flatirons Center for Law, Technology and Entrepreneurship. I am affiliated with both, and look forward to working with Joe in his new roles.
“Joe had an exemplary full-time career, starting with the Telecommunications Research and Action Center, a Ralph Nader group, and continuing through his consulting work and position with Comcast. I enjoyed working with him, even though we may disagree on issues from time to time and always believed he was an honest broker of ideas.”
