Does Your Politician Have a Technology Policy?

The US presidential process is well under way, the Australian one fading into memory.

But as I reflect back on the promising talk that emanated from the new Australian labor government’s spruikers pre election, and their almost complete reversal post being put into office, I cannot hep but wonder if there was more we could have done to “keep the bastards honest” [to use an Aussie colloquiasm].

Reading the LA Times article on Mike Arrington’s approach – he got to the politicians early in their campaigns, touted his wide readership as his influence stick and then proceeded to beat the candidates over the head is his ever so gentle TechCrunchian way – it hit me: smart, really smart.

It is high time the Australian tech community corralled its influence – it is not too late.
