Too Long; Didn't Read

Our world leaders need a crash course in tech. Badly. The ineptitude our elected representatives' demonstrate in terms of both tech itself and the industry is, depending on your metric, is either frightening or laughable. Even Mark Zuckerberg struggled to contain a giggle when asked by Senator Orrin Hatch how Facebook makes money if users don’t pay for it. The older the politician, the less likely they are to understand Big Tech on any level. We need politicians who know this and who are prepared to legislate accordingly.
