Does the Bush administration 'get IT'?
That question -- does the Bush administration get IT -- is raised not by me, but by many Silicon Valley high-tech executives, according to the San Jose Mercury News this morning
Early in his first run for the White House, George W. Bush traveled to Palo Alto and told high-tech executives that he understood their industry and ``this incredible land called Silicon Valley.'' Now, six months into his second term, some executives in Silicon Valley question whether Bush and key members of his administration really do ``get it'' when it comes to high tech.
We expressed some displeasure
about the Bush administration's decision not to renew the President's Information Technology Advisory Council... and to not even explain why. [I have posted the editorial here on the blog
as well if you care to comment.]
The Mercury News story notes that the IT community is increasingly turning to Congress to get tech issues addressed. Unfortunately there are only a handful of lawmakers who understand these issues.
