Barack Obama’s technology and open-government policy proposals are honestly some of the most inspiring things I have seen in years – commonsense use of available technology to decloak government operation and legislative debate as much as humanly possible. The fact that this sort of thing is practically revolutionary is kind of sad, but revolutionary it nonetheless is: keeping the wireless spectrum open, aggressive government support of broadband, fifty billion dollars for clean technology research, network neutrality – you name an idea supported by the technogeeks, Obama is pushing for it.
I understand that some of you may have reservations or not understand the implications thereof, so let me put it this way. Here is Anthrax and Public Enemy performing “Bring The Noise.”
Barack Obama wants you to be able to see that in even better definition using solar power forever. I trust you see why this is a great set of policy proposals now.
(I also neglected to write a while back about Obama’s emissions cap plan. Long story short: it is good, better than just about anything offered yet in America and indeed most of the world for that matter.)
