Last week, over on our Step 2 discussion platform we kicked off a discussion on what an "innovation agenda" might look like for a US-politician for 2012. What kinds of regulatory changes should they be focused on? This effort, done in partnership with Engine Advocacy, has already kicked off a nice discussion over there with some interesting ideas being tossed around. If you haven't yet, please join in the discussion. I'm not surprised that copyright issues and open internet issues top the list of things most interesting to folks -- the SOPA/PIPA debate has pretty much guaranteed that. I am a little surprised that issues around helping skilled entrepreneurs -- the folks who create jobs -- was seen as less of an issue compared to some of the others on the list. Either way, the discussion is still going on there, and we'll be taking it further over the coming weeks and months, so feel free to join in.
