Why is technology not a key component to many political campaigns?
Barack Obama and Sarah Palin were the first people in 2008 to use social media to obtain huge followings! But that's only scratching the surface.
Rarely ever do we see, politicians embrace Google or Apple or some small startups! Do politicians even care about technology? Rarely ever do we see
politicians actually do something about technology or security. We are falling behind many world nations in our electronic infrastructure and year
after year we fall behind in our readiness to combat a cyber terrorism threat.
I believe that as we get farther into the 21st century technological issues will increase at the political level. I remember watching the cyber
security debate this year from the republicans and not a single one of them understood its power. Jon Huntsman understood technology the most. None of
them have real plans for technology so I'm not too worried about what they were talking about.
However, the democrats with Obama's crazy investment schemes on crappy solar panel companies that go bankrupt after a few years, show that they don't
know anything about technology either. Obama at least tried to understand technology by having a dinner with technology corporate gods last year in
silicon valley. However, during that same meeting Steve Jobs amazingly yelled at Obama stating, "your policies will destroy us all!" or something
along those lines!
What do you think about Technology's future in politics? Should technology stay out of politics and vice-versa if even possible? Which it might not be
as we become more infused to tech
