Watch the Internet Bus Tour visit the Kauffman Foundation live at 6:30
After stops in Lincoln, Des Moines and Iowa City the last three nights, the Internet 2012 Bus Tour makes its fourth and final Silicon Prairie stop tonight, visiting the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City, Mo. for a panel on entrepreneurship.
For those who can't make it to tonight's event, the Kauffman Foundation is providing a live stream. Tune in at 6:15 p.m. to catch the proceedings.
The Kauffman Foundation has additional information on tonight's event:
reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian will lead a panel discussion featuring founders of some of Kansas City's most innovative Internet-based startups, including AgLocal, Neighbor.ly and Leap2. Also on the panel will be Jay Rogers, founder and CEO of Arizona-based Local Motors, the world's first open-source automobile company.
For those not famililar with the Bus Tour, it's an effort spearheaded by reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and general manager Erik Martin to raise awareness about the importance of the Open Internet with a campaign-style road trip through the heart of the country.
The nine-day trek started last week in Denver, the site of the first presidential debate, and ends Thursday in Danville, Ky., the site of the vice presidential debate. Its aim is to show that SOPA and PIPA would have been a hit to companies across the country, not just in Silicon Valley.
