NextGen is complicated
Not easily explained to general audience
FAA website does a good job of speaking to travelers
Transitioning a ground-based World War II (so called) era ATC system into a space- based state-of-of-the-art communications, navigation and capacity-managing system is difficult, verging on impossible, to accomplish. Explaining it in terms which the average citizen can understand is a writing challenge of Shakespearean dimensions.
Kudos to the FAA team which created this instructive web page.

Once at the webpage, you can navigate to multiple associated webpages.
While aviation professionals may debate the structure and financing of NextGen, the technology has a strong consensus behind its need. Few general audience publications will take the time to read, much less write, about the information contained in this FAA website.
