Geeks Get Political

from the it's-about-time dept

There certainly have been a lot of scary and idiotic moves in Congress and the courts on issues that affect techies. One thing it has done is finally made the average techie pay more attention to political and legal issues. Stanford is even teaching a computer science class on policy issues. People are beginning to realize that there are a lot of people in positions of power who simply don’t understand the issues they’re making important decisions about. While other industries have an effective “educational” lobby, the tech industry has been slow to catch up. As the average techie gets more educated, hopefully, that will change.
