Gigi Sohn's nomination hearing before Senate Commerce for the fifth Commission seat is coming Wednesday, and all signs point to it being more contentious than that of Acting FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel. But her supporters have stepped out in the days leading up to her potential confirmation, and many of them are independent programmers.
