Mr. PC Goes To Washington

from the it's-all-about-the-lobby dept

Over the past few years it’s clear that Silicon Valley has learned that the government plays a big part in how the industry moves forward. The Economist looks at the growing up process of Silicon Valley as they learn that lobbying matters. They also point out that things like the CBDTPA show that other industries still have a much stronger lobbying history. I know that at many “techie” gatherings I’ve been to lately the talk has been more focused on legal issues than on actual technology issues.
