As most of you know, we will be voting for a new president this
November. In anticipation of tonight’s vice presidential debate and having
watched Tuesday’s presidential debate, this opinion piece
alleges that many of the technological issues facing us today such as
antitrust concerns (Microsoft or even Rambus) and Internet privacy and
taxation are not even being discussed by the candidates

In general,
Americans distrust big government and feel that increased governmental
intervention does not bode well for any particular industry. The Sherman
Antitrust Act sure seems long in the tooth. The recent plunge of many
technology stocks (based on the perceived lack of European demand?) may
merit some consideration here. I will throw this out to you guys: do we need
a formal technology policy in this country?
