Growing Think Tank Finds More Space
WASHINGTON D.C. - The continuing growth of The Progress & Freedom Foundation has led it to relocate to larger office space. As of today, the Washington, D.C.-based Foundation is located at 1444 Eye Street NW, Suite 500.
In recent years PFF has steadily increased its scholarship of digital economy issues. Most recently it launched the Center for Digital Media Freedom, which joins other initiatives of recent years including the Institute for Regulatory Law and Economics (IRLE), the Federal IRLE, and the Center for the Study of Digital Property (IPcentral.info).
"We're bursting at the seams," says PFF President Ray Gifford. "It doesn't make much sense to continue hiring the best thinkers of the digital age if we don't have a place to put them. Our new office space not only accommodates our growing number of senior fellows, it also has room for us to host events, which up until now have all been held offsite."
This is the second time in three years PFF has moved, with both moves being driven by the need for more space. The move is also a reflection of the impact PFF scholarship is having in the public policy debate. The most recent evidence of that is interest in PFF's Digital Age Communications Act, a comprehensive effort to craft model communications legislation that involves other think tanks and academics as well as policymakers from the last five presidential administrations.
"From the annual August Aspen Summit to our Congressional Seminars and CEO Luncheons, the pro-market philosophy shared by PFF scholars is making itself heard," says Gifford. "Our new space will help with that effort."
PFF's new address is 1444 Eye Street NW, Suite 500, Washington, D.C., 20005. Phone numbers, the fax number, e-mail addresses and the web site remain the same. The new office is only one block north of the old location.
The Progress & Freedom Foundation is a market-oriented think tank that studies the digital revolution and its implications for public policy. It is a 501(c)(3) research & educational organization.
