Resolved: Be Better Next Year

Dec
30
2004

This being the day before New Year’s Eve, my eWeek column is about tech’s political future.
It has one, never fear. And it’s not a dismal as many would like to think. Silicon Valley has made great progress in talking to non-tech folks in their language. But there’s lots of work that still needs to be done and tech folks have got to stop thinking with their hearts (Bush is bad) and get a little political sophistication.
The split between hardware vendors and software guys on copyright, the industry – particularly Silicon Valley’s – refusal to really think hard about immigration and it’s approach to tax policy are just plain lame. It’s not quite irresponsible but it’s getting there.
