In many ways, there is no difference between politics and commerce. The government is well on its way to increasing technology regulations. If a regulation comes down that "for the good of the industry" we all have to conform to .NET, it would have a major impact on commerce. That's just a far-fetched example. As more minor regulations are handed down, minor negative impacts are experienced. Computer technolog has benefited greatly from limited government intervention. Don't mention computer/internet origin, I'm talking about where we have gone since then.
I think the point the group is trying to get across is that we do not need more government regulation now or in the future. I think that is a wonderful message and more than worthy for actively supporting.
