The Zuck congressional testimony this week brought much mirth to be sure (see my link at the end of this newsletter), but also begs the question: why didn’t congressional staffers better prepare their bosses for the media circus? I have both testified before Congress and worked for a Congressional agency (which has since been eliminated), so I have some knowledge of the process. Sadly, the Senators should have been better prepared. Making technology policy certainly isn’t any harder than, say, making other kinds of policies. Or is it?
