As January slips away, I'm pressing one of my most important deadlines: Advising Alpha Female Sue Polinsky on the state of the tech political agenda in 2010. This is part of a plan for a ConvergeSouth panel next fall that will include several politicians.
So I've been reading, but reading only fills me in on what I know to look for, and when it comes to the scope of the tech agenda, what I don't know surely exceeds what I do. From bandwidth regulation to net neutrality to tariffs and copyright reform, the political decisions that will shape our technological landscape (and overwrite our ideas about media) are both obvious and oblique. Some of these most relevant questions might not even be tech-oriented at this point. And I don't want to miss those.
So here's my question: To what political and regulatory issues should the tech community be paying the most attention in 2010 and 11? What reforms (or assaults on our freedoms) should we view with the greatest wariness?
Answers, please, in comments. Or on Twitter. Or Facebook. Just communicate your thoughts to me, that's all.
