Writers are pushing for legislation to guarantee the Internet's status as an open forum for communication. Partic Verrone, the president of the Writers Guild of America, West, is scheduled to appear today before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee at a hearing entitled "The Future of the Internet."
During the recent writers strike that virtually paralyzed television production for three months, Verrone learned the value of the Internet.

It was his job to keep his members unified during the highly public, 100-day strike, and the Internet proved invaluable.
