Press Release: NCSF Announces New Board Member Appointment

Scott Purcell Joins NCSF Board 

August 25, 2009 - NCSF is proud to announce the addition of a new board member, Scott Purcell. Purcell has been in the internet industry since the inception of the browser, founding Epoch Networks in 1994, one of the original 7 network firms that formed what we now call the Internet. During this time Purcell also served on the Board of the Commercial Internet Exchange and was the liaison to Congress and the FCC for the Clinton administration. Purcell has founded numerous other ventures, including OnAir Networks (music streaming), Web Biographies (life journals & family trees), Browsercast (search distribution) and Kasidie.com (swingers social network).

Purcell has appeared before Congress on numerous occasions on behalf of the internet industry and as a retained consultant for the Recording Industry Association of America.  As the founder of Kasidie.com he works with swinger clubs, party promoters, bloggers, resorts, photographers, travel agencies, and others throughout the swinger community. This includes established enterprises as well as people just starting new ventures that ask for help with promotions and sponsorships. 

"I am passionate about this lifestyle that we all lead (by "lifestyle" I refer to "adventurous sexuality", not just swinging) and believe that the NCSF can and should be a major factor in working to ensure the civil liberties on a local and larger scale basis," says Purcell. "With my business, non-profit and political experience I can contribute to this fight."
